High-Impact Practices

The College of Arts, Sciences, and Letters recognizes that the undergraduate student experience is about more than choosing a major and taking classes. So we provide hands-on experiences to undergraduates — seminars, engaging programs, and community experiences that go beyond or expand upon academic majors.

These experiences are known as High-Impact Practices (HIPs), and result in more successful outcomes for the students who engage with them.
