Experiential Learning for Faculty and Staff

The creativity and innovation of faculty and staff is critical to the success of our students.  Experiential learning is one way faculty and staff can help students build a toolbox full of interpersonal skills, professional skills, and discipline-specific skills to help them excel in their future careers. 

Create Your Own Adventure is a co-curricular program that will help students with personal and professional development, as well as community engagement.  If you have an idea for a new co-curricular pathway that could help students in these areas, contact Beth Hinga (hingabd@unk.edu).  See the Create Your Own Adventure page for existing pathways. 

Both faculty and staff are eligible to apply for mini grants of up to $250.  These grants are to be used for the direct benefit of students.  A description of the grants and the application are below.

If you are interested in offering courses as part of the experiential learning program you can find all the necessary documents and information below. This includes approval process, approval request form, grant information, and the mini grant form.
