Community Based Learning for Students

Community-Based Learning courses offer undergraduate students the opportunity to experience service-learning as part of an existing course. A Community-Based Learning course has met 8 criteria to be designated by the Center of Community Engagement & Service and the Registrar as a CB course. CB courses are unique in having community engagement embedded into course content and prioritized in learning outcomes. Students practice, re-examine, and deepen their classroom learning through 20 hours of direct service or a project with a nonprofit organization.
