What is EXL?

Experiential learning can best be described as

“that learning process that takes place beyond the traditional classroom and that enhances the personal and intellectual growth of the student. This education can occur in a wide variety of settings, but it usually takes on a ‘learn-by-doing’ aspect that engages the student directly in the subject, work or service involved.”

-- Experiential Education in the College of Arts and Sciences, Northeastern University, 1997.

As part of the accreditation review by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), MTSU has developed a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP). This plan is designed to enhance student learning. The program is called the Experiential Learning Scholars Program (EXL).
