Beyond the Classroom
The Lighthouse: Center for Exploration & Discovery
Virginia Wesleyan challenges all students to undertake an internship, to study away for a semester or more, to conduct independent research, and participate in community engagement by the time they graduate.
These are the experiences that will transform you.
VWU offers an array of resources, one-on-one career counseling sessions, customized programming, and internship and externship opportunities to facilitate meaningful career development.
The Study Away Program offers a variety of programs that support students as they prepare for and undertake a study away experience, including Study Away Course Grants, individual counseling, and workshops on preparing for study away experiences.
VWU provides financial and instructional support to student researchers through research grants, research conference grants, and a workshop series that guides students through all aspects of the research process.
Civic Engagement and Service Learning
VWU, through the office of Wesleyan Engaged, nurtures partnerships with civic organizations in order to facilitate meaningful student engagement activities, to promote the growth of faculty-led service learning courses, and to improve the Hampton Roads community and beyond.
