Breaking Boundaries 2017
Developing, Assessing, and Scaling Curricular and Co-Curricular Experiential Learning Opportunities

April 28, 2017

Experiential learning, in its many different forms, can be transformative for students and can lead
to increased rates of retention and engagement. As demonstrated in the University Plan for
Experiential Learning submitted to Governor Andrew Cuomo’s office in June 2016, CUNY’s colleges
are already actively engaged in experiential education practices. At the same time, there is
tremendous opportunity—and enthusiasm—for increasing and diversifying experiential learning
opportunities (ELOs) for students. CUNY’s 2017 Experiential Learning Symposium aims to convene
conversations about maximizing the effectiveness and reach of both curricular and co-curricular


Visit CUNY’s Experiential Learning website to view details of CUNY’s categorical definitions of ELO,
which are necessarily broad, given the distinct priorities and strengths of its various colleges and
the wide spectrum of students they serve.
