About The Center for Academic Engagement
The Center for Academic Engagement was created as a central point of contact for students to find experiential learning information, including information about service-learning, undergraduate research, study abroad and off-campus academic experiences. The office is also a place where faculty can receive support for integrating service-learning and other experiential activities into their courses. Finally, the Office acts as a general volunteer clearinghouse for Vermillion and the surrounding area.
