What does the future of experiential education look like at Case Western Reserve University? How might we formalize or credential the existing experiential education opportunities—in which 98 percent of the student body participates—into existing academic structures or co-curricular learning? How can the university elevate experiential education into a hallmark of the student experience and a CWRU education?
Join the Center for International Affairs and colleagues from the Center for Civic Engagement and Learning, the Division of Engineering Leadership and Professional Practice, and Post-Graduate Planning and Experiential Education to discuss the future of experiential education at CWRU.
