Mission

The Experiential Learning Commons (ELC) strives to develop and host a passionate community of learners, teachers, and researchers interested in creativity, innovation, and critical engagement with our world. We do this through specialized equipment and spaces, supported projects, and ongoing conversations.


This resonates with the "Transformative Education" pillar in Baylor's strategic plan:

At Baylor, learning is more than just what happens in the classroom. Our students’ educational experiences connect their academic and creative strengths to the surrounding world, providing experiential learning opportunities in the local community and beyond that help prepare them to become leaders who can resolve challenging problems in our state, nation, and world. (from "Illuminate Forward: Transformative Undergraduate Education")
