Hendrix is committed to the value of learning from experience and engaging the liberal arts in practices of life. Under its distinctive Odyssey program Hendrix requires all students to complete an approved experience in at least three of six categories of engaged learning: Artistic Creativity [AC], Global Awareness [GA], Professional and Leadership Development [PL], Service to the World [SW], Undergraduate Research [UR], and Special Projects [SP]. “Your Hendrix Odyssey,” however, is more than the graduation requirement. It is a way of learning and educating that informs curricular and co-curricular activities across the campus. It is an understanding of the connection of theory and practice, research and world that encourages learning in settings beyond the traditional classroom and campus settings. Moreover, the program aids Hendrix students in their preparation for life after Hendrix, including their vocational journeys, their career paths, and how they might best use their skills and talents to respond to the needs of our time.
