In fall 2016, Southern Utah University offered a semester-long immersive experience for 12 undergraduate students. Students lived and worked at Ruby’s Inn Resort adjacent to Bryce Canyon National Park, and six faculty members commuted from campus to Bryce Canyon’s High Plateau Institute to teach our courses. This presentation will discuss how our partnerships with private and public entities in our community contributed to a unique educational experience.
