2023-2024 Course Catalog

Center for Experiential Education

Experiential education builds knowledge, develops skills, and clarifies values by engaging students in direct experience, community engagement, and focused reflection.

The Center for Experiential Education includes:

  • Service-Learning: Students in certain courses have the opportunity to volunteer at relevant not-for-profit organizations as part of the class.
  • Internships: Internships provide the opportunity to explore career options in a supervised work setting. Students can register for an internship course in one of Normandale’s departments. In the internship course students spend approximately 5-10 hours per week at an internship and complete assignments guided by an instructor. Students can earn 2-4 credits per semester.
  • Volunteering: We can provide you with recommendations of where to volunteer that matches your interests and goals.
  • Leadership Through Service: Students in this program are part of a supportive peer network of students that empowers them to positively impact their community on and off campus. Members volunteer 30-40 hours over the course of the semester and get a scholarship of $500. Students must be first generation college students and/or have unmet financial need.
  • America Reads and Counts: America Reads and Counts is a program where Normandale students tutor Bloomington Public School children in reading, math, and after school homework help. Applications are accepted at the start of fall and spring semesters.
  • Campus Cupboard: The Campus Cupboard provides food and personal hygiene items for any Normandale student.
