Experiential learning gives students hands-on exposure and a lasting professional edge.

Lerner knows that opportunity comes to those with the most relevant and high-impact experience, often gained outside a traditional academic setting. Our experiential learning centers encourage undergraduate and graduate students to gain habits of reflection, critical analysis, decision-making and accountability as well as broad knowledge, skills and values — all from direct experiences.

These carefully planned, supervised and assessed experiential learning programs give our graduates an edge in terms of early professional development while also enhancing long-term career development, cultural awareness, leadership and other life-long skills.
