Outreach and Opportunities

TLI looks for opportunities for our students to receive hands-on experience with organizations and community initiatives that provide outlets for civic involvement and leadership development. For those students who pursue the Minor in Leadership, involvement with off-campus organizations and on-campus programs can be certified as meaningful learning experiences for posting on the Experiential Learning Transcript. These activities serve to complement classroom learning, provide real-world experience, while also equipping the student with a marketable “edge” when it comes to applying for employment or graduate school.
