What is the Centre for Experiential Learning?

The Centre for Experiential Learning (CEL) is dedicated to student success through Work-Integrated Learning (WIL), Career Services (Career Studio), Peer-Supported Learning (PSL), and Co-Curricular Engagement & Learning (OCCEL). Student learning is enhanced when integrated with academic and experiential education. Services offered by the CEL prepare students for transitioning into life after graduation.
