Active Engagement requires students to connect actively with their communities, local or on-campus, through:

  • leadership experiences
  • internships
  • a practicum (e.g., nursing clinical or student teaching)
  • participation in college-sponsored co-curricular endeavors
  • completion of an appropriate project funded by a Journey Grant

The intent of this category is to provide you with the opportunity and encouragement to apply the abstract in settings that have meaning and motivation for you, thus strengthening the learning that occurs in the academic setting of the core curriculum.

A complete list of approved activities can be found on by contacting the Associate Dean. Students’ completion of the applied learning experiences in the three categories is recorded in the office of the Associate Dean for the Core Curriculum.
