A Puget Sound Education: Something you do, not something you get.

Experiential Learning at Puget Sound cultivates student participation in meaningful experiences that enhance their education through the practice of active reflection. This deliberate and thoughtful reflection is:

•  Ongoing: Student engagement is fostered by multiple opportunities for integrated experiential learning both inside and outside of the classroom

•  Individualized: Student experiences are designed to celebrate and challenge them in a meaningful way

•  Transformative: Student development is central and promotes a habit of lifelong learning and civic engagement

Experiential learning is a whole person approach designed purposefully to engage learners in direct experience and focused reflection through myriad methodologies. This personal and transformational process increases knowledge, promotes critical analysis and synthesis, develops skills, clarifies values, and enlarges students’ capacity to contribute to their communities.
