Experiential learning is the core of the Caldwell Fellows program. Experiential learning is a method of "learning by doing", reflecting on the experience, and making sense of that new knowledge. This is an example of NC State's "Think and Do" motto in action.
Experiential learning in the Caldwell Fellows is made possible through enrichment stipend funds which encourage students to use program resources to stretch their learning and deepen their development with opportunities otherwise unavailable to them. Fellows may use stipends to pursue experiences designed by the Caldwell Fellows program, and other campus departments, or design their own stipend experience.
