Proposals are also evaluated based on:

    • High-impact learning experiences provide students with opportunity to: 1) apply, integrate, and synthesize knowledge from curricular and co-curricular experiences, 2) have diverse interactions with those different from self, 3) invest time and effort in purposeful tasks that result in learning, 4) express awareness of individual impacts of experience to self, others, and the larger world, and 5) interact with faculty, peers, and staff/advisors about substantive matters over extended periods of time.
  2. How does the location enhance high impact learning?
  3. How the proposed program enhances students’ career benefits and lifelong learning?
    • Lifelong learning refers to “purposeful learning activity, undertaken on an ongoing basis with the aim of improving knowledge, skills, and competence” (Lifelong Learning Value Rubric).
  4. How the proposed program supports and facilitates the development of intercultural knowledge, diversity, equity, and access
    • Consider what detail the program provides students opportunity to enhance self-awareness through examining one’s own cultural rules, norms, and biases. How do programs intentionally expose students’ different cultural worldviews, modes of communication, and other interactions?
