With generous support from the Mellon Foundation and Transfer Bridges to the Humanities, The Center for Experiential Learning (CEL) provides quality experiential learning opportunities in an inclusive environment. CEL promotes collaboration between students, faculty, community, university, and employer partners. With the support of on and off campus partners, students apply theory to practice through transformative, high-impact, academic and service learning opportunities. CEL supports our students’ immersive learning experience facilitating the skills and abilities necessary to contribute to our global community and workforce.
At Schoolcraft College, The Center for Experiential Learning serves as a hub for experiential support immersing our students in real-world learning. CEL provides scholarship and fellowship programs such as Honors Scholars and Social Impact Scholars. Through CEL, we sponsor, co-sponsor, and support applicable workshops, expert lectures, conferences, and special events through UM Transfer Bridges, Humanities in Action, STEAMz, and SCII. CEL also provides opportunities to present, attend, and participate in conferences and special on and off campus events. We provide multiple opportunities to apply for fellowship and internship programs available in undergraduate research, volunteering, fieldwork, and other exciting opportunities available through the University of Michigan, Campus Compact, and more.
“The Scholars Honors Program continues to be transformational! I am always grateful for the fantastic academic experience I had at Schoolcraft.”
