  • Overview

    Through this special project, students will assist the Educational Field Trips department. Typical tasks may include compiling field trip itineraries and participant lists, assisting with hotel and tour reservations, and manage trip reminders and pre-departure information. Students will also assist with promotional activities through social media updates and bulletin announcements on campus. Participation in field trips as assistants to tour leaders will directly involve students in department activities.

    This special project course features experiential learning hours with our Community Engagement Member Institutions (CEMI). CEMI are dynamic learning environments created to foster learning through a structured interaction with the community. Students will be involved in learning by doing through real projects and integration with the local population and territory in order to remove cultural and learning barriers as well as to develop a strong likelihood for success in life. The experiential learning hours are fully supervised by instructors who track students step by step during their learning experience, monitor and advise according to student needs, and support student initiative. This unique learning model allows students to benefit from an all-encompassing educational experience based on theory and practice in real enterprises, learning of comprehensive operational processes, problem-solving, leadership, and management.
