Community-Based Learning and Research provides AU students and faculty the opportunity to respond to significant needs of the DC metropolitan area. Students practice, re-examine, and deepen their classroom learning through a project in a nonprofit setting where their work benefits others as well as their own intellectual development.

- The Incorporation of Community-Based Learning (CBL) into Courses: faculty and students can seek assistance with community placements, finding community-based learning resources, and receive logistical support to more effectively integrate community-based learning into their courses.
