The goals of the Culminating Experience are a final review, consolidation, and assessment of the UULOs, as well as the learning outcomes of the respective major, which prepare students to transition to the workplace or the next phase of their academic career.

Each major/degree program must have an identified culminating experience, which can be in the form of one or more credited course(s) and/or non-credit project(s), including:

  • an original undergraduate research project, and/or
  • a collaborative project that solves problems in other organizations and/or
  • a design capstone, and/ or  
  • developing an e-portfolio of artistic or scholarly work completed over a student’s college career, and/ or
  • a subject-relevant internship with an academic component, and/ or
  • a subject-relevant service learning project with an academic component.

The culminating experience is to be successfully completed in conjunction with final coursework in a major area of study prior to graduation.
