Experiential Education

The Office of Undergraduate Education's Experiential Education offices and programs purposefully engage with learners through direct experiences at home and abroad. Through these immersive engagement opportunities, OUE fosters curiosity, challenges student perspectives, clarifies values, and expands self-awareness. OUE's Experiential Education division also assists multiple units with risk mitigation and emergency management.
