The J.D. Power Center for Liberal Arts in the World helps students identify and pursue opportunities outside of the classroom, and to better articulate the value of these opportunities as part of a Holy Cross education.
Experiential learning — the process of learning by doing — is an essential element of a liberal arts education; it transforms students from knowledge consumers to knowledge producers. It also helps students to adjust their trajectory through college, as hands-on experiences provide feedback about their vocational aspirations.
The J.D. Power Center is the central hub for experiential learning at Holy Cross. Whether it is an internship, a community-based learning course, or a research project, each Holy Cross student should be looking for opportunities to move their education off campus, and to integrate the classroom with the global community.
The J.D. Power Center for Liberal Arts in the World is made possible by the family foundation of J.D. Power '53, a pioneer in consumer research and information, whose support significantly expands experiential learning opportunities for Holy Cross students. Read more about the gift »
