The Common Experience

The Common Experience is a component of SDSU's Office of Academic Engagement Programs in the Division of Undergraduate Studies. The office of Academic Engagement Programs implements programs that offer high impact educational practices such as service learning, undergraduate research, internship, and shared intellectual experiences. These increase faculty-student interactions, deepened student learning, and lead to advanced student achievement.
