Life in college matters for life after college. Students who were closely engaged with faculty or participated in an internship program were more likely to be engaged at work and have a higher level of well-being, according to a research study. Universities across the world offer many similar high-impact opportunities to support and enrich the student experience, and life beyond college. High-impact educational programs help to: stimulate intellectual engagement; provide hands-on, real-world, active learning; raise levels of academic performance, retention, and success; and multiple experiences produces greater benefits.
This presentation will discuss the concept of "high-impact" and how students can benefit by participating in high-impact educational opportunities, such as travel study programs, undergraduate research, service learning, internships, and other strategic initiatives focused on supporting a rich student experience.
This workshop offered as part of UCR's participation in the Association of Pacific Rim Universities Virtual Student Exchange Program. Learn more about APRU VSE on their website: https://vse.apru.org/
