Our experiential tracks guide team-work projects that transverse multiple academic disciplines and professions, requiring students to apply knowledge and experiences to solve real-life problems.
Students choose one experiential track and spend five weeks working in teams, under the guidance of mentors, professionals, and professors to come up with a solution to a real-life problem. Teams present their conclusions at the end of the semester to an audience of diverse stakeholders who will assess the potential and value of their proposal.
HOW CAN WE CONTRIBUTE TO A HEALTHIER FUTURE?
Assuming the enhanced life expectancy of the world's population in the 21st century, students work on projects that address how to: sustain human health improvements, maximize the efficiency of social services, and predict/address the health challenges of the future.
Students in the R&U Sustainability track work on projects that must: address the fair distribution of environmental space, promote sustainable production and consumption, and identify the means that will lead to improved quality of life in the 21st century.
