In 2016, the Center for the Advancement of STEM Teaching and Learning Excellence (CASTLE) was awarded funding through the Office of the Provost’s DARE initiative to study experiential learning opportunities such as cooperative education, undergraduate research, and study abroad. The Experiential Learning through the Cooperative Education Lifecycle project brought people together from six colleges and three additional academic units at Drexel to engage in the systematic collection of data towards answering research questions about experiential learning. CASTLE has leveraged this work to attain additional funding from the Colonial Academic Alliance and The Arthur Vining Davis Foundations.
