The John and Libby Drinko Center for Experiential Learning

The Drinko Center mission is to enrich the undergraduate experience by engaging students in collaborative research with faculty, by incorporating academically meaningful service-learning into the curriculum, by participating in collaborations that address community and regional needs, by initiating and supporting civic engagement activities, and by continuing to build and share the College's expertise in these areas. Over time, this will firmly establish Westminster as a regional and national leader in undergraduate experiential education.
