Experiential Learning Student Profile

Activities & Opportunities

“Experiential learning occurs when individuals engage in some activity, reflect upon the activity critically, derive some useful insight from the analysis, and incorporate the result through a change in understanding and/or behavior” — David A. Kolb, American educational theorist

EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING–LEARNING BY DOING: participation, leadership, professional or educational development, honors, awards, service, performance, and more. Create an Experiential Learning Student Profile (ELSP) to record these kinds of experiences.

  • An excellent way for you to evaluate and document activities throughout the college years.
  • Identify and highlight developed skills and accomplishments.
  • Think of the ELSP as a complementary component to academic credentials: a formal list of your accomplishments outside the classroom, a supplement to your resume, a crucial component to a portfolio.
  • Share your ELSP with prospective employers and graduate or professional school admissions committees.
  • Build confidence!
