Experiential Learning

Real World Experience Makes All the Difference

At Davenport University, we believe that life is not a spectator sport. Davenport isn't here for our students to watch it happen. Our mission is to help you MAKE it happen. start out as a new student, but you'll leave as a new person: ready to take on the world, and prepared to do it well. Jump in. 

Davenport believes that real-world experience is critical to a student’s career development and success.  To that end, the university supports a wide range of out of classroom experiences, collectively known as experiential learning.  Students get involved through classes with projects in the community which help to build their academic, professional etiquette, and networking skills.

Our objective

To give you the personal experience outside of the classroom, as a part of credit-bearing courses, that adds value to your educational objectives and development through practical application of program and course outcomes and the process of reflection. 

Experiential learning gives you a broader perspective in the areas of professional and lifelong learning, civic and community engagement, and internationalization.

With experiential learning, you'll be prepared to succeed in—and contribute to—today’s complex real world.
