Hiram connect takes your traditional classroom experience and connects it to an out-of-of the classroom, experiential learning experience.

CONNECTING CLASSROOM AND OUT-OF-CLASSROOM EXPERIENCES
From the moment you arrive on campus, Hiram helps you become the best student you can be. Your academic experience isn’t just a bunch of classes. It’s a powerful combination of what you learn in and outside of class and how ideas introduced in one place help you understand concepts in another. At Hiram, you will put those ideas to work immediately: in your job, on your athletic team, in a student organization.
To guide you in this journey, Hiram introduced a program called Hiram Connect. It’s designed to help you think about and begin to answer the 5 C questions at four specific times during your undergraduate career.
Curriculum: What should I know, and know how to do? What should I learn?
Career: To what work can I devote myself? How will I prepare myself for this work?
Calling: Where will I find meaning for my life? What will give my life purpose?
Character: Who do I want to become? How will I become my best self?
Community: Where do I belong? Where can I serve?
And because our faculty have been trained to use technology in cutting-edge ways, you will use your college-issued iPad pro to learn in ways you never have before – getting you ready for the 21st-century workforce you’ll enter after you earn your degree.
A FOUR-STEP PROCESS
Hiram Connect facilitates meaningful reflection at four important academic milestones and throughout the curriculum. During each of the four steps of Hiram Connect, you’ll be asked to connect the dots between your classroom experiences and out-of-classroom experiences.
