What is Experiential Learning?
Experiential Learning at UTC takes students beyond the classroom connecting theory
to practice through internships, creative endeavors, intercultural experiences, research,
leadership and service learning opportunities.
What is ThinkAchieve: Beyond the Classroom?
ThinkAchieve: Beyond the Classroom is the platform for supporting Experiential Learning
at UTC. Our students participate in and reflect on some of the most remarkable experiences
offered at UTC, in the Chattanooga area and around the world.
As students participate and reflect, they gain points towards university awards and
recognition while simultaneously acquiring vital experience for life.
See the broad variety and growing number of currently designated opportunities for
Students, Faculty and Staff, as well as how to create new ones.
