Improve Your Global and Multicultural Competency Skills!

The Patriot Experience is a new co-curriculum program at Mason geared toward student growth beyond the classroom.  This experience is the perfect way to help students:

  • Become an involved member of the Mason community
  • Network with faculty/staff/other students
  • Help prepare students to increase soft skills such as teamwork, collaboration, problem solving, adaptability, communication skills, leadership, decision making, creativity, responsibility, etc.
  • Enhance students’ education at Mason

The Patriot Experience captures students’ involvement through four different pathway areas:

  • Well-Being
  • Career Readiness
  • Civic Learning and Community Engagement
  • Global and Multicultural Competency

VIP volunteer hours count as credit toward the Patriot Experience Global & Multicultural Competency Pathway.
