The Office of Connected Learning

The Office of Connected Learning fosters high-impact experiences that contribute to innovative and influential teaching, learning, and research. A commitment to connected learning builds greater capacities for students, staff and faculty to connect theory to practice, exercise adaptive leadership skills across novel settings, and embrace the multiple contexts we all bring to our work. It recognizes that our ideas, discoveries, research, and institutional successes result from the relationships and human ecosystems that feed them.
