Learning and Service Opportunities
The department mentors students in acquiring knowledge and developing
skills beyond the classroom. We encourage our students to engage in a
variety of extracurricular activities within the department, the
university, and the larger academic/non-academic community. Some of

professions outside of academe. Learning Beyond the Classroom
