The PBA Difference

 

The David and Leighan Rinker Center for Experiential Learning

David and Leighan Rinker Center for Experiential Learning

David and Leighan Rinker, with the Marshall E. Rinker, Sr. Foundation, have established the Rinker Center for Experiential Learning (RCEL). The Rinker Center for Experiential Learning is a center for the entire PBA community. Built around the pillars of Study Abroad, Serve Abroad, Class Abroad and Faculty/Staff Abroad, RCEL encourages learning experientially so that students and faculty may enhance the knowledge and skills necessary for lifelong engagement, learning and leadership in the global community.

Studying abroad enriches students’ lives by providing semester-long cultural experiences, serving abroad engages students’ faith by providing opportunities to minister to the global community and enrolling in a class abroad enhances the learning experience by incorporating an international component into a PBA course. RCEL also eases the travel process for faculty and staff abroad by providing administrative support, risk management, as well as international travel- and medical-insurance. Since its establishment in 2011, the Rinker Center for Experiential Learning has sent nearly 2,000 members of the PBA community abroad.
