Affiliate faculty gatherings / field trips happen roughly once a month (first half hour socializing with an interactive, one hour program after). The 2023 - 2024 program is a joint program among the Mead Art Museum, Center for Community Engagement, and the Office of Sustainability and is focused on integrating experiential learning into the curriculum. The College received a grant to help support this endeavor. Check out the experiential learning funding portal to learn more. Faculty can receive $2,500 to develop a new course or $500 to develop a new assignment / field trip / lab that incorporates experiential learning.
