Study Abroad: The Rinker Center for Experiential Learning

David and Leighan Rinker, with the Marshall E. Rinker, Sr. Foundation, have established the Rinker Center for Experiential Learning (CEL). The center provides an engaged, academic travel study experience for students. Educational benefits of the program include understanding the history and culture of the country visited as well as increasing employability.
