The days will be filled with learning about and adding to your knowledge in Experiential Learning, opportunities to share best practices and diving into experiential opportunities as part of the learning. By attending this institute, participants will gain skills that will help them develop effective experiential learning practices on their campuses and learn how student engagement can be supported through experiential learning.

Several sessions will be led by our Scholar in Residence, Dr. Adam Peck, Assistant Vice-President and Dean of Student Affairs at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas.
