At Medaille College, learning is hands-on and connected with the community. Through EQUIP, our faculty work directly with students to link classroom learning with real-world problem-solving—right from the first semester. EQUIP encourages early and continuous career exploration through community involvement and internships. In every undergraduate program, students get out of the classroom to apply learning through team work, projects, and service in local organizations. By graduation, students have developed the skills that employers want, and they have built a network to rely on for future opportunities.
And because successful careers happen when we understand a profession’s impact on the community, we designed an experience that will connect student learning and personal goals with the needs and opportunities in Buffalo, the region, and the world.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
