Increasing Access to Experiential Learning

Last updated: June 7, 2018


Goal

We are committed to increasing access to experiential learning for those student populations that have historically faced barriers to engagement. This will be achieved through strategically expanding existing offerings to address the needs of a broader cross-section of our student population, and actively promoting opportunities to at-risk students. Additionally, we will align our on-campus employment and paraprofessional opportunities with employability outcomes and provide formal institutional recognition for them.
