At Roger Williams University, we understand that an education today needs to be experiential, linking theory with practice. The University is continually investing in innovative programs, both academic and co-curricular, to provide transformational educational experiences to students that prepare them to fulfill their potential as lifelong learners, professionals and citizens. The aim is to integrate traditional, classroom-based teaching with intensive experiential learning. Whether out in the community, working on an interdisciplinary project through our Community Partnerships Center, completing a customized internship with a regional or global business, or working in the laboratory doing important research with a professor, students solve problems creatively. They learn to communicate effectively and think critically – the very skills that employers say are too often missing in today’s college graduates. Take a look at the below categories of engaged learning opportunities and learn why RWU graduates have a built-in advantage over those from most other schools when applying for grad school or that first job, and are further ahead when they take the next steps on their career path.
