A New Way To Learn

eXp at EWU encourages students to explore their futures through experiential, multidisciplinary, impact-oriented learning. Students work closely with the faculty to use essential critical and creative skills through meaningful experiences inside and outside the classroom. The result is a project that has a positive impact on our community.
