The Sed Vitae experience is a chance to connect your Carroll education to the world beyond campus. It is a central part of Carroll’s commitment to preparing you non scholae, sed vitae, “not for school, but for life.”
All Carroll students must complete one Sed Vitae experience as part of their Core Curriculum Requirements. All Sed Vitae experiences:
- are developed in conjunction with and pre-approved by the appropriate campus bodies.
- undergo a formal application process that defines learning outcomes.
- involve a minimum of 42 contact hours.
- require students to complete an essay addressing how their experiences allowed them to “substantively integrate their academic formation with the concerns of the broader world” (Core Curriculum Outcome 1e).
Use the information on this page to figure out which Sed Vitae experience is right for you and to determine your first steps. Once you complete the approval process for your experience, you will be enrolled in the appropriate Core-Sed Vitae course and the corresponding Moodle course where you can submit your essay.
