Experiential learning often involves students working in various settings both on and off campus and may or may not be part of formal course/program requirements. These settings, and the work our students do while in them, present risks that are not present as part of traditional classroom learning. These risks can, and must, be managed to ensure successful learning experiences for our students and meaningful service for our external constituent groups. GVSU College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) in conjunction with Risk Management has developed guidance for faculty and staff interested in providing experiential learning opportunities to students.
CLAS has graciously offered to provide access to its Risk Reduction For Experiential Learning Guide website.
