Experiential Learning Team

What does the Experiential Learning Team do?

The goal of the Experiential Learning team is to facilitate the continued growth, development and coordination of experiential learning opportunities at the University of Guelph. We support students, departments and colleges, industry partners and community organizations with the design and implementation of a diverse range of curricular and co-curricular experiential learning activities.
