Community-Based Learning Coordinators

Currently the Center for Social Concerns (CSC) works with seven Community-Based Learning Coordinators (CBLCs) in local partner agencies. The CSC understands that the formal education of students who become involved in the local community extends beyond the classroom and that the students encounter people in the community who become their teachers as well as their supervisors. The Community-Based Learning Coordinators who work with the Center for Social Concerns are a great resource to students, and it is a pleasure to introduce students to some of the finest teachers in South Bend. The CBLCs are available to help students find placements in their agencies that meet both the needs of the community-based organization and the student. They are aware of the importance of finding ways to connect the students' real life experiences with their academic work. In addition, they are committed to making reflection a part of the student's experience in their organizations.

In addition to working with students, the CBLCs serve as resources to faculty by assisting them in creating course-related community-based learning opportunities. The Center for Social Concerns is able to inform and educate students, faculty, and staff about community service and social action because of this valuable resource. The Community-Based Learning Coordinators are willing and able to find the right placements for students who come to them either individually or as part of a course related assignment.
