Featured Keynote Presentation:  Integrating Academic and Career Development:  Strategies to Scale Experiential Learning and Reflection Across the Curriculum

Critiques from parents and employers about undergraduates that lack the skills necessary to succeed post-graduation are growing ever louder and this negative attention has affected both institutional and program enrollment. This presentation will address the veracity of media and employer claims and profile the colleges and universities pioneering high-impact career preparation by integrating experiential learning and in-demand skills into the academic curriculum with a particular focus on the liberal arts. Finally, the research will address how traditional career preparation and experiential learning has failed to reach at-risk populations and profile institutions that have excelled at engaging these typically underrepresented groups.
