THINK OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM. This issue explores the many ways Drew students benefit from experiential learning opportunities that often take them far from the comforts of The Forest. One feature highlights new and enhanced internships made possible by donors who support the One And All campaign. Another focuses on the cross-cultural experience that is a cornerstone of the Theological School curriculum. And another demonstrates how Drew’s research-based science programs launch graduates toward professional success. Collectively, our stories and photographs underscore Drew’s signature culture: Less sitting. More doing.
