Students Might Ask

“Why should I care; this is not my graduation requirement?”

This is true – the requirement will apply to all incoming students beginning with the 2013-14 academic year, not our current students. But as we expand and improve our Experiential Learning opportunities, those students who already have to complete one of these courses as part of a degree requirement will have an improved experience. And for those students who are not required to take an Experiential Learning course as part of their major, increased opportunities AND recommendations from more of their peers who have taken one of these course, will pique their interest and motivate them to see what all the fuss is about.​

​This sounds great. As a faculty member, how can I help?

Become an active component of the marketing campaign designed to bring everyone at JU up to speed and excited about our QEP. Please "like"​ the Experiential Learning EL) Facebook Page​. Second, this campaign was designed to target students (faculty, staff and administration tend to read memos and emails), so if we ask you to hand something out, or make an announcement, or click on a link – please play along.​
