From traveling to other countries to leading a research group, experiences in education can be found in every corner of Carlow University and beyond. Experiential learning enhances education by encouraging creativity and critical thinking, enriching global perspectives, addressing human and community needs, developing skills in team-building, collaboration and effective leadership, and learning through supervised career-related work.

The Center for Experiential Learning at Carlow, located in University Commons, offers five areas of opportunities for students to learn outside the classroom:

Benefits of experiential learning
