Experiential and Service Learning
We provide opportunities for our students to contribute, to collaborate and to learn that they can make a difference

Individuals have a multiplicity of talents and skills which should be encouraged and celebrated. By exploring controversial topics our students will learn to be at ease with uncertainty.
