High-Impact Practices Seminar and Lunch

Come have lunch and learn about engaging “high-impact practices” happening on our campus. Academic high-impact practices are course activities and college programs that are intended to foster student engagement in course material, encourage teamwork and cooperation and promote connections with faculty, fellow students and members of the community. They include project-based learning, service learning, undergraduate research, supplemental instruction, diversity, internships, study abroad, global thinking, honors programs, first-year experience programs and capstone experiences. In this 2-hour seminar, you will learn about why high-impact practices are great for students and faculty, what is happening at Fresno State, what students think about these activities, and opportunities to get more involved.
