Taking Education Beyond the Walls of the Classroom

The Center for Social Concerns (CSC) invites you to expand the boundaries of your classroom into the neighborhoods of South Bend and beyond. 

Thousands of students have taken part in the opportunities offered through the CSC and our many partners. Consider taking a Community-Engaged Course that connects you with the organizations in the directory below.

The CSC works with Community-Based Learning Coordinators (CBLC) in seven of the organizations listed. CBLCs are available to help students find placements in their agencies that meet both the needs of the community-based organization and the student.
