Experiential Learning Trips

Experiential Learning Trips PhotoThe Center for Multicultural Student Services sponsors annual Experiential Learning Trips (ELT) that are designed to immerse students into various cultural and ethnic experiences that support a co-circular learning environment. Each ELT offers a challenging learning atmosphere, promotes understanding, encourages open communication and supports team cohesiveness through small group experiences. Participants will increase their cultural awareness and knowledge as it relates to the overall trip theme, while increasing self-awareness, self-understanding and personal responsibility.
