About

Supporting students, faculty, and staff

The Institute for Engaged Learning promotes and supports the equitable progression of undergraduates through pathways of connected and scaffolded curricular and co-curricular, applied, integrative, and experiential learning opportunities that prepare students for lives of commitment and success with skills to communicate, innovate, and engage in local and global communities to address 21st century problems.

The institute is comprised of units and centers that work together to support faculty, staff, and students in these efforts, including:

  • First-Year Experience programs
  • Center for Service and Learning
  • Center for Research and Learning
  • Gateway Learning Academy
  • ePortfolio Initiative
  • RISE

The institute seeks partnerships with other units offering engaged learning experiences in the campuswide effort to ensure that all undergraduate students participate in at least four scaffolded, high-impact engaged learning experiences by the time they graduate.
