What is Community-Based Learning?
Through designated academic courses, students and faculty engage with dozens of community organizations on projects of mutual benefit. Community-Based Learning (CBL) provides students opportunities to apply knowledge and skills from the classroom to analyze and address issues facing the local community. One of the College's Signature Learning Experiences, CBL helps students to develop a deeper and more integrated understanding of their studies while benefiting the wider community.
