Education is, not a preparation for life; education is life itself.Education, therefore, is a process of living and not a preparation for future living.” –John Dewey

At Eastern we strive to engage our students right from the start in their own learning process and their own personal development. This means that students are given choices and allowed to make decisions. They learn to construct meaning from the information at their disposal and to develop new skills, new attitudes or new ways of thinking. The ultimate goal of such “engaged learning” is that students are able to transfer what they learn to real life problem solving and thus are well prepared for a lifetime of learning.

At Eastern we believe that experiential learning or learning from experience provides some of the best engaged learning opportunities. Further, we know that future employers value the learning experiences students have beyond the traditional classroom.
