Community-Engaged Courses

COMMUNITY-ENGAGED COURSES

Experience education outside the classroom.

The Center for Social Concerns offers the following kinds of community-based courses:

Experiential Learning (EL) classes put students in direct contact with some aspect of the issues being studied in their coursework. The off-campus area offers sites for learning, but students don't necessarily engage in service.

Community-Based Learning (CBL) courses give students the opportunity to contribute to the community beyond the campus. Their experiences are integrated into class like a reading assignment, providing them with an additional text for consideration during class discussions and in written assignments.

Community-Based Research (CBR) involves students in an investigation of a question of concern to a non-profit community organization. The results of the study are intended to assist the organization.
