About the Office of Integrative Learning and Advising

 

Vision
Integrative learning is recognized and valued as having a vital role in a liberal education and the GVSU experience.  This emphasis on integrative learning helps students to put the pieces together and develop habits of mind that prepare them to make informed judgments in the conduct of personal, professional, and civic life. (Excerpted from AAC&U Statement on Liberal Education)

What is Integrative Learning?
Fostering students' abilities to integrate learning--over time, across courses, and between academic, personal, and community life--is one of the most important goals and challenges of higher education. The undergraduate experience is often a fragmented landscape of general education, concentration, electives, co-curricular activities, and for many students "the real world" beyond campus. An emphasis on integrative learning can help undergraduates find ways to put the pieces together and develop habits of mind that will prepare them to make informed judgments in the conduct of personal, professional, and civic life.  (Excerpted from AAC&U Statement on Liberal Education)
