Community-Based Learning Courses

A community-based learning course (also known as service-learning) combines regular coursework, community engagement, and reflection.  A community-based learning course also provides an opportunity for students, faculty members, and community partners to engage in organized community activities that address community-identified needs.  The experience pushes you to reflect on engagement activities to gain a further understanding of the curricular content, enhance your personal values, and increase your sense of social responsibility.
