What are the High Impact Educational Experiences (HIEEs) in the program?

High Impact Educational Experiences (HIEEs) promote student learning through curricular and co-curricular activities that are intentionally designed to foster active and integrative student engagement. A critical component of each HIEE is the invaluable opportunity for each participant to:

  • Reflect on what was learned during the experience;
  • Engage in meaningful interactions with faculty, staff and peers
  • Interact with many different people and circumstances
  • Demonstrate learned and developed competence
