Ingenuity in Action
Your education at Cornell consists of a unique blend of experiences, though these experiences can be difficult to articulate to employers, admissions committees, and others. The Ingenuity in Action program encourages you to participate in experiential learning both in and out of the classroom and reflect on the knowledge and skills you’ve gained.
All students will participate in at least two Ingenuity in Action (IiA) experiences as part of meeting their curriculum requirements at Cornell. Some students may do many more. To count your IiA experience toward the curriculum requirements, you will need to register your experience for transcript notation. Learn how to participate.
Experiential learning is an active and reflective process whereby students build upon their liberal arts education through its application to a real-world context to advance their personal and professional development. Experiential learning at Cornell College encompasses many different types of hands-on learning, such as internships, service learning, study abroad, research, and more.
Experiential learning has many benefits, both personally and professionally. To learn more about how Cornell College sees the benefits, visit https://www.ucdenver.edu/lynxconnect/internships/about
Reflection is a powerful tool for learning and growth, and this skill will help make you a great candidate for future opportunities. By participating in the program, you are internalizing lessons you learned and applying valuable knowledge and skills you gained to different contexts. This reflection and self-awareness helps you prepare for meaningful employment, graduate studies, service to others, or any other path you choose to pursue in life.
