San Juan College’s (High Impact Practices) HIP Hub focuses on helping further students’ success. 

What are HIPs (high-impact practices)?

HIPs are active learning, evidence-based practices that promote deep learning by promoting student engagement and equity on college campuses. HIPs include service learning, common intellectual experiences (such as One Book/One Community), global studies, collaborative assignments and projects, undergraduate research, portfolios and capstone projects, internships, and first-year seminars.

What are the benefits?

  • Students who participate in HIPs are more likely to complete college, maintain a high GPA and have an overall positive college experience. 
  • HIPs provide a collaborative space for educators to develop new teaching ideas and learn from one another.
