The CCE needs your input to build a list of community-based learning (CBL) courses to promote to students! What is community-based learning? CBL is experiential education that simultaneously – and in roughly equal balance – promotes student learning and meets community needs. CBL courses must meet the following two criteria. 1. The course incorporates an experience or project that directly interacts with, and benefits, communities beyond the campus. This community component may include an experience that seeks to address a mutually-defined community need and/or a research project that seeks to co-create solutions to complex social challenges. 2. Community-based work is an integral component of the course, enhancing and enhanced by knowledge from the curriculum. The course provides structured opportunities for students to learn from the experience, and academic assessment evaluates this learning; credit is not given solely for participation in community work. To nominate a course to be tagged as CBL, please email either a syllabus, or the course title/professor/description of CBL project to firstname.lastname@example.org.
