Experiential & Community-Engaged Learning, or EXCEL, promotes reciprocity and inspires reflection, leading to more sustainable, applied ways of understanding. The EXCEL Center was created to support faculty with funding and resources for experiential learning course projects.
Learning can become deeply meaningful when “learning by doing” is expanded to include interacting, including, valuing, and reflecting. Your students will:

Student Activity Waivers are required for off campus travel with students.
It is the student’s responsibility to get waivers to the faculty and the faculty’s responsibility to ensure all waivers are collected before going to the field. The student immediately receives a copy of the completed waiver. The Dean and Provost’s office only has copies if something happens to the faculty member in the field.
