The EPICS program is a leading example of practical, skill-based community engaged learning and successful cultivation of long-term community partnerships. (click here for overview article) Over 20 campuses throughout the country, and many high schools, now participate in this program based at Purdue.
The New School hosts five interdisciplinary, problem-based "schools of public engagement" including schools of international affairs and urban policy, media studies, languages, creative writing, and adult education.
In this innovative program, PSU faculty "build cooperative learning communities by taking students out of the classroom and into the field. Students bring together the knowledge, skills, and interests developed to this point through all aspects of their education, to work on a community project."
WPI requires a nine-credit "Interactive Qualifying Project" in which interdisciplinary teams of students work with faculty and community partners to address real-world problems. Many of the projects are completed through the Institute's Global Projects Program.
