A&S Experiential Learning Services

This is an office within the College of Arts and Sciences that assists students who seek internships and other forms of experiential education such as assisting faculty members with research, performing community service, participating in education abroad, etc.  While they do not actually place students in internships themselves, they work with students to identify opportunities and assist with applications. In addition, this office will guide students through the process of obtaining  academic credit and finalizing logistical issues such as housing and travel. They will also help students to identify useful campus services to assist with planning.
