The Drinko Center For Experiential Learning provides opportunities for faculty, staff, and students to participate in a variety of outreach opportunities.
Several of the programs directed through the Drinko Center are broadsweeping and impact entire communities in Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio. For example, the Grable Foundation supports a Theatre Camp, Teacher's Academy, Educational Leadership Series, and the Celebrity Series Children's Show. Another example is the Resch Foundation's support of the Bright Futures Camp. Both of these major program supporters, Grable Foundation and Resch Foundation, provide the Drinko Center with the means to enrich teaching and learning through outreach initiatives.
The Drinko Center also supports small-scale programming, some of which has included the purchase of books for a faculty member who tutors a group of underprivileged children, workshops that connect Westminster faculty and students in a variety of settings, and transportation for a group of Westminster students who are teaching inner-city youth to read.
No program is too large or too small.
