Drew's learning culture is one of exploration. Hands-on learning is vital in the process of finding your voice, and at Drew, learning happens any time you have a chance to attempt something new.
Drew students develop the confidence to explore the world through hands-on learning experiences that involve active problem solving and creative, critical thinking.
Experiential learning allows both students and teachers to tap into one’s own creativity, as well as a more in-depth quest for knowledge and skill. Experiential opportunities allow you to challenge your ideas about identity, social justice, and your place in the world around you.
Direct experience allows the development of skills and values and strengthens structures for you to become a lifelong learner and a productive member of your communities. Through these experiences, you will push your boundaries and experience physical, emotional, and intellectual growth.
