Students will be awarded academic credit only for college-level learning. This learning will demonstrate a conceptual as well as a practical grasp of the knowledge and/or skill acquired in the three learning contexts of field placement, city seminar, and city living, and will be applicable in other learning contexts as well.
Students are expected to achieve the following:
- An understanding of experiential learning and the ability to apply academic subject matter to the field placement and city living experience
- An expanded sense of independence, competence, confidence, and resourcefulness; and a realization and appreciation of one’s proactive role as a citizen-participant in relation to local and global communities
- A critical examination of one’s prior experience, knowledge, attitudes, and values in relation to people who come from backgrounds and experiences different from one’s own
- Knowledge of what an organization does in relation to its mission, how it achieves its goals, and how it functions in its economic, social, and/or political context
- The development and acquisition of work-based, city seminar, and personal skills, values, and knowledge
