High-Impact Practices (HIPs) High-impact learning happens when students are actively engaged in the educational process, when their learning goes beyond the classroom to be applied in their personal and work lives. Students engaged in high-impact learning often see improvement in grade point averages, get their degrees more quickly, and are more engaged in their education. CSUDH is committed to providing high-impact learning experiences to all students at all levels, across the whole curriculum. In a high-impact learning experience, students actively pose and solve problems, work collaboratively in a community of peers, experience real-world applications of knowledge, and reflect on their learning processes.
