High-Impact Practices

One of Elon University’s distinctions is its leadership in the area of “high-impact” educational practices. These practices are seen as particularly beneficial for the development of undergraduate students. Each year U.S. News & World Report issues a “Focus on Student Success” ranking of key programs that enrich the college experience. Elon is the only university in the nation identified as a leader in eight high-impact practices:

  1. Study abroad
  2. Internships
  3. Senior capstone experiences
  4. First-year experiences
  5. Learning communities
  6. Service learning
  7. Undergraduate research/creative projects
  8. Writing in the disciplines

The faculty and staff in the School of Communications are strongly committed to having students engage in these high-impact practices. Participation rates of 2023 ElonComm graduates are listed below:
