Applied Learning Plan Overview

On May 6th, 2015, the SUNY Board of Trustees (BOT) passed a resolution stating that SUNY shall develop a plan to make approved applied learning activities available to SUNY students enrolled in the 2016-17 academic year, and that this plan will include individual campus plans. The resolution follows from language in the 2015-16 Enacted State Budget (in an “Article VII” bill).

To achieve this goal each campus is required to submit an Applied Learning plan that documents the types of applied learning activities available. SUNY campuses are also required to examine the feasibility of making applied learning activities a graduation requirement.

The Applied Learning Guidance document is intended to provide guidance to campuses as they develop individual Applied Learning (also known as Experiential Learning) Plans. 

Fredonia Community Engagement
Fredonia faculty, staff, and students are actively engaged with our local communities. In addition, the Power of Fredonia strategic plan and our mission clearly demonstrate Fredonia’s commitment to applied learning and community engagement (see Community Engagement Snap Shot).
