Since the Shaw Center is at the nexus of academic and community life, we can tap into a wellspring of experiential knowledge. Drawing upon archives of both students’ and instructors’ notations and myriad assessments, we are an evolving “laboratory” of what works and what does not work in learning. Accordingly, we welcome inquiries from faculty as well as community organizations who seek expert guidance on courses, programs, risk/liability, or training.
