The Student Experiential Learning Conference
The Student Experiential Learning Conference will showcase VT-shaped learning through a celebration of the work of our Virginia Tech undergraduate student body.
Proposals are invited from students of all years and majors on projects and experiences that demonstrate purpose-driven experiential learning including: undergraduate research, service-learning, study abroad, internships, and other curricular and co-curricular programs and activities.
