LISA BROOKS AND LINDA SIMPSON
A feature article by Lisa Brooks and Linda Simpson titled, "Experiential Learning in Higher Education: Implications for Improving Employability of FCS Graduates," was published in the Spring 2014 issue of the Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences. The feature examines graduates' perceptions of transferable employment skills received as a result of experiential learning. Experiential learning in this study focused on respondents' participation in an internship and/or study abroad program. A significant finding was that internships and study abroad experiences were perceived to have a positive impact on respondents' personal growth, professional growth, and their ability to gain employment.
