Faculty are committed to providing learning opportunities that are experiential and related to civic engagement and the natural environment. Wednesday afternoons are reserved for learning outside the classroom. On “Experiential Wednesday” students continue their studies in two ways:
- Students use the Experiential Wednesday time to engage in course work in the field and off campus.
- Students learn in a community setting along with faculty and staff. The Office of Student Engagement collaborates with faculty to create a dynamic and engaging schedule of Wednesday afternoon activities.
This focus ensures that classroom work is connected to the real world, that learning includes physical, hands-on exercises and outside-the-classroom experiences.
