Impact Learning Office Offers UHD Students Interactive Educational Experiences

UHD’s Impact Learning Office (ILO) invites students to take part in its high-impact practices (HIPs), which aim to connect freshmen and sophomores with internship and field experience opportunities across Houston and beyond. UHD Office of Impact Learning

Since its launch in 2021, ILO has served as a hub for students to engage in four HIP areas: service learning, study abroad, internships/field experiences, and undergraduate research. 

The ILO has also hosted several field trips to a variety of workplaces, ranging from genetics labs to Houston museums, with the goal of providing students a variety of learning opportunities. 

“We hope to continue field trips and to expose students to different professions and ideas to prepare them better when choosing an internship or other interactive learning experience,” said  Dr. Poonam Gulati Salhotra, ILO Executive Director. “We try to make these trips engaging so that students can engage and network with professionals.”
