Experiential learning — the process of learning by doing — is an essential element of a liberal arts education. The J.D. Power Center is a hub for experiential learning at Holy Cross. This experience might be a student-designed project or a research opportunity; a study abroad experience; a focused commitment to a community organization or activity; an internship or The Washington Semester Program related to their vocational interests; or an “entrepreneurial” opportunity that integrates skills and academic interests with an engagement in the world.
