Crush your career goals with the Premier Life Skills experiences you’ll only find at HPU!

For the past decade, HPU faculty have made sure at least a quarter of everything taught has an experiential component. Why? Because professors want their students to stretch themselves, work in the community and find out firsthand what “real” means. Students then discover for themselves that experience brings real-world context to classroom content. And with the university’s opportunities for internships, study abroad, and research, they graduate prepared and ready to go.

We'll practice in an environment where you can fail and know you have a support system to help you. Then when we step into those real-life opportunities, we're ready. We'll hit the ground running.

I see this as the world's best learning lab where students will encounter problems and learn how to manage them in the moment. You can't duplicate that with a case study, or a role play in a classroom.
