COVID-19 UPDATE: We have made the decision to continue end-of-semester symposia in an entirely online format.  Spring 2021's HIP Symposium will take place Thursday May 6th and Friday May 7th, through a webpage designed to showcase ~5 minute videos of student presentations.

Spring 2021 HIPS Timeline

High Impact Practices (HIPs) Student Symposium

Fresno State is committed to providing students with the most effective learning and development opportunities possible. Countless research studies have demonstrated that courses which engage students in hands-on, active learning projects, especially those where students apply academic content to real-world community issues, are more effective in improving student success compared to traditional lecture courses. These types of experiences are called “high-impact practices."
