Students in Spring 2017 classes

If you are working on any individual or collaborative research projects this semester, consider presenting your work in the Fall 2017 Experiential Learning Symposium.

Contact Daniel Langenthal for more details.

Experiential Learning Symposium

Each year Brandeis hosts an interdisciplinary symposium to showcase and celebrate the diverse and impressive ways that students engage in experiential learning. Our goal is to bring together undergraduate students from every major and discipline to share their work with the entire Brandeis campus and community partners. In this way, the symposium highlights those who have engaged in Experiential Learning in and/or out of the classroom and have shown an elevated level of exploration, discovery and innovation.

Whether it was in your summer JBS course, a practicum or an innovative collaborative project in your major, we encourage all students to apply!
