External Experience at LHU
External Experience (EE):
Students are expected to apply skills and knowledge gained in the academic environment in a setting outside the classroom. The university's general education curriculum requires students to apply classroom learning by requiring external experience in a course, internship, or documented non-credit experience. Please see your advisor for specific information regarding this requirement.
LHU’s Community Service Office may be one resource in supporting your faculty identified and approved External Experience (EE) with possible community partnerships and community service activities.
1.Students apply, exercise or perform, in an educationally meaningful way and in a setting outside the classroom skills and knowledge gained in the academic environment.
2.All valid External Experiences must have an audience, a set of colleagues, or a group of beneficiaries that extends beyond the university classroom and typically beyond the university community.
3.A faculty member in a discipline related to the experience must evaluate the EE. The faculty member must be involved in identifying the activity as an external experience before it begins. EE cannot be identified retroactively.
4.One unit of EE is equivalent to a minimum of ten percent of the coursework for a three-credit course, or approximately 14 hours.
