The Atlanta Laboratory for Learning

The A_LAB (short for the Atlanta Laboratory for Learning) is unique in higher education. It was created to link classroom theory and real-world experience in tangible, creative and unexplored ways. Over four years, Oglethorpe students use the resources and guidance of the A_LAB to mesh what they learn from professors and books and lab experiments on campus with what businesspeople, policymakers, healthcare workers, scientists, community activists, and artists are doing – every day – around Atlanta, the United States, and the world. 

Under the A_LAB roof is a cadre of collaborators in the areas of Global Education, Professional Development, Civic Engagement, and Undergraduate Research.
