Situated centrally, within Academic Affairs and Undergraduate Education, the ELN works with students and faculty from across the University to incubate new offerings while supporting student access and engagement. In an effort to deepen our commitment to high-impact experiential learning that is both accessible for our students and equitable for our partners, we are pleased to introduce our new Project Portal and digital badge series.
