The +LAB brings together undergraduate and graduate students from across the university in a dynamic learning environment designed to immerse students in the theory and practice of Positive Organizational Scholarship (POS) and equip students to apply what they have learned and prepare them to become organizational change agents.

The +LAB runs through the academic year with an expected commitment of 2-3 hours throughout the year. Fellows engage in developmental education sessions called huddles, enroll in a 7-week course about the growing domain of positive organizational scholarship, and contribute to work that is important to the life of the Center for Positive Organizations.
