Students using spotting scopes

The Office of Experiential Learning is part of Student Services in the Rubenstein School. Staff work with students, faculty, and community partners to facilitate and support high impact engagement through internships, service-learning courses, study abroad, and applied research.

These experiences prepare Rubenstein School students to become effective environmental leaders and engaged citizens by developing problem-solving, critical thinking, communication, and professional skills. Our programs also foster skills in cultural competency so that our graduates may work inclusively across diverse communities and perspectives.

Getting firsthand experience is key. Take advantage of these great opportunities to gain experience, enhance your skills, and learn more about possible jobs and careers.
