The University of Tampa is a strategic partner of the National Society of Experiential Education (NSEE). NSEE is a nonprofit membership association of educators, businesses and community leaders founded in 1971. The mission of NSEE is to foster the effective use of experience as an integral part of education in order to empower learners and promote the common good. The University of Tampa supports the use of learning through experience in five main types of settings: service-learning, internships and cooperative education, faculty-mentored undergraduate research, education abroad and leadership development.
As the Southern Regional Institute of NSEE, The University of Tampa hosts annual workshops in the fall and spring for experiential educators interested in pursuing a certificate from the Experiential Education Academy.
