Experiential Learning Data Collection:

We are actively documenting experiential learning each semester. This information is needed for numerous reasons, one of which is to support the goals of CRED, our Quality Enhancement Plan. Additionally, data will help support the need for funding for future experiential learning opportunities. As part of the UNT System strategic plan, each campus is being asked to assess the ways in which faculty engage our students with experiential learning, and to what capacity. Please participate in survey’s sent from our office and encourage students to complete surveys as well.
