Learn and do at CWRU!

A class of students walking through the Cleveland Botanical Gardens

Do. Learn.

Within six months of graduation, 96% of Case Western Reserve University students are employed or in graduate school. 

That’s not luck.

That’s a direct result of the kind of learning that takes place at CWRU. It’s learning that gives our students real-life skills and engaging, tangible experiences that demonstrate their value to future employers.

We call it experiential learning. And (not-so-humble brag)—
we’re really good at it.
