Formed by the Dean of the College of Letters, Arts & Sciences, the LAS Peak Ambassador program is part of the Peak Learning Experiences initiative. Peak Learning Experiences is a college-wide initiative to prepare our students to thrive in today's job market and beyond. LAS offers many opportunities for students to acquire the knowledge, skills, and experiences necessary to make informed career choices in this ever-changing labor market. Students thrive in environments where they are encouraged to apply their knowledge. LAS provides students with real-world experiences to help develop the skills employers value, including critical thinking, analytical skills, team work, and communications. Peak Learning Experiences include field studies, student exchange, internships, community-based research and service, and engaging in scholarship with faculty. Student-Faculty research is encouraged and supported by financial awards to students and their mentors. Students also have opportunities to present at the Colorado Springs Undergraduate Research Forum (CSURF) or the Mountain Lion Research Day.
