Community-Based Courses For Students

Community-Based Learning & Reseach courses offer undergraduate students the opportunity to experience service-learning as part of an existing course. Students complete 20 hours of community service or a service project related to their course content and facilitated by the faculty member.

CB courses are a great way for students to put their education to use and get practice with hands-on skill application. Examples of hour-based experiences in the past have included translation work in language courses. Project-based experiences have included creating social media posts in visual literacy courses. See an example from one class below!
