FELI – Five-Day Experiential Learning Institute

6 September 2016


The FELI is a five-day transformative learning experience that mirrors our PERSIST Program’s Foundations Course, which kicks off the beginning of each college bridge semester. Teachers, counselors and administrators experience an essential component of the program as an educationally disadvantaged student does.


Using curriculum developed by the nationally renowned Academy for College Excellence, we will identify and explore:

  • Leadership and Learning Styles of ourselves and others
  • Positive Team Building
  • Listening techniques toward effective communication
  • Reflection toward self-management of behaviors
  • Faculty-specific discussion about teaching and learning in the evolving classroom



This link to the Academy for College Excellence (ACE) website provides more on this game-changing experience:


Who this may benefit most:

All faculty, staff and administrators who work with basic skills students, especially in key “gateway” classes, and who understand that managing life experiences (students and our own) makes the biggest difference in just educational access.
