FULL ABSTRACT: 

Mason Impact seeks to offer all students the opportunity to participate in curricular and co-curricular activities that support their development as Engaged Citizens and Well-rounded Scholars who are Prepared to Act. This initiative builds on our institutional strengths and our location outside the nation’s capital to offer our students transformative learning experiences through experiential and inquiry-based learning, and multidisciplinary intellectual exploration. The main goal of Mason Impact is give every student an opportunity to participate in a Mason Impact activity, with emphasis on undergraduate research, civic engagement, global learning, and entrepreneurship. This session will 1) give an overview of the Mason Impact Initiative, 2) highlight the different ways faculty and programs can deepen their students’ learning and development by scaffolding experiences into their academic work through Curriculum Impact Grants, and 3) describe the main steps students can take to achieve these experiences, from discovering the range of opportunities, to learning the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful, and then to participating in high-impact activities. We will also welcome your input into our developing plans.
