The Office of Experiential Learning and Community Engagement develops opportunities that make a difference – to our students, with our faculty, and for our community partners.

Experiential Learning occurs when students engage in authentic activities with application beyond the classroom and reflect to synthesize it with their knowledge and education.  These activities allow students to develop a deeper understanding and discover new perspectives in their academic, professional, and personal lives.

Wooster expresses Experiential Learning in a three-tiered model:

Explore – Investigate – Immerse

This model incorporates a range of activities including internships, volunteering, field experiences, job shadowing, alternative break trips, mentored consulting projects, and collaborative research in our local community and around the world.

APEX staff actively develop opportunities and connections for students through an ever-growing network of alumni and community partners.
