The Center for Public Impact offers resources on designing, implementing, and assessing community-based learning (also known as service-learning) courses and community-based scholarship.
What is Community-Based Learning
Community-Based Learning, also known as service-learning, is a class-based, credit-bearing educational experience which integrates academic material, relevant community-based engagement and/or service activities, and critical reflection based on a reciprocal partnership that engage students, faculty/staff, and community members in achievement of academic and disciplinary learning objectives and civic outcomes to advance public purposes.
We are happy to meet on an individual basis or as a small group to discuss integrating community-based learning into new/existing courses or programs and/or into scholarship. Contact Paul Valdez at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a consultation.
