High Impact Practices (HIPs) Student Symposium

Fresno State is committed to providing students with the most effective learning and development opportunities possible. Countless research studies have demonstrated that courses which engage students in hands-on, active learning projects, especially those where students apply academic content to real-world community issues, are more effective in improving student success compared to traditional lecture courses. Building on previous successes, our symposium now goes further, helping connect our students' learning to even more globally relevant sustainable development efforts.  More information on the university's role in sustainable development.  

Fall 2022's HIP Symposium will take place Friday December 9th, with a face-to-face portion planned on campus and an online component through a webpage designed to showcase ~5 minute videos of student presentations.
