Prescott College is a member of two major college consortia, the EcoLeague and the Consortium for Innovative Environments in Learning (CIEL), as well as having access to the Consortium for North American Sustainability, giving students access to vastly different campus cultures. Students also have opportunities to participate in an exchange program with the University College of Southeast Norway. Via these temporary student exchange programs, students experience different political and social milieus and develop a rich comparative intellectual perspective. In addition to these exchange opportunities, students can also study abroad to gain new perspectives and expand their world view.
CIEL is a working group of twelve institutions and programs that trace their roots to the best of innovative and reform practice in American higher education. We’re not easily categorized as we excel in different ways, but we’re all deeply and richly student-centered in our practice. Constantly seeking for authentic teaching, assessment, interdisciplinary and experiential learning techniques, we’ve come together to learn from each other and maximize our impact on U.S. higher education. Students are able to participate in exchange programs with the other member institutions.
