The National Society For Experiential Education or NSEE, is made up of a collection of professionals, faculty administrators, and scholar practitioners within higher education and the K-12 educational sector. These professionals are committed to building experiential education into the learning structures and enhancing learning through experiential education. The work of these scholars and professionals is through service on a variety of committees and the board of directors that make up NSEE.

NSEE also tries to build the capacity of educators to help develop personal, professional, civic, and global learning in all of our educational structures. The emphasis of experiential learning in all of these structures is really important to capture intellectual development, personal development, civic development, and development in global learning and awareness. All of the individuals that make up the membership of NSEE are here to continue to build experiential learning, not only in the present, but into the future to address the ongoing issues of building equity and access in education, and in order to build stronger connections to real world experiences and develop learning into the future.

The National Society for Experiential Education (NSEE) is a non-profit membership association of educators, businesses, and community leaders. Founded in 1971, NSEE serves as a national resource center for the development and improvement of experiential education programs nationwide.
