The University of Arizona has made major strides with its 100% Engagement initiative, which guarantees all undergraduate students an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in their chosen field before they graduate.
The initiative, an important component of the University's Never Settle plan, provides students with formally documented, experiential education opportunities in the form of internships, research projects, service learning, community volunteerism and other activities.
A key person in the UA's engagement efforts is Vincent Del Casino, vice provost of digital learning and student engagement and associate vice president for student affairs and enrollment management.
Del Casino talks in this video about what makes the UA's initiative unique and how engaged learning can enrich the student experience.
