This information is used in reporting for the Title III grant which focuses on enhancing student retention, persistence, and graduation rates through expansion of experiential education opportunities. For purposes of this grant, experiential education opportunities include:
Service-Learning – applying lessons learned in the classroom while serving the community or addressing societal needs.
Community Engagement – is AUM’s collaboration with our larger communities (local, regional/state, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity. The purpose of community engagement is the partnership of AUM knowledge and resources with those of the public and private sectors to enrich scholarship, research, and creative activity; enhance curriculum, teaching, and learning; prepare educated, engaged citizens; strengthen democratic values and civic responsibility; address critical societal issues; and contribute to the public good.
Internships – Typically a semester in length and coinciding with the school term, internships are hands-on opportunities to learn practical skills in the work environment rather than in a classroom. Internships allow students to put theory into practice and see how the two work together. An internship should be a carefully monitored and structured experience that has intentional learning goals and outcomes.
Undergraduate Research – a mentored investigation or creative inquiry conducted by undergraduates that seek to make a scholarly contribution to a discipline.
Field Experiences – learning activities completed outside the classroom that correlate to and supplement the content taught in academic coursework. Much like other types of experiential learning, field experiences start with identifying how lessons learned in class can be applied to activities or problems in the real world through active experimentation.
