This work is based on reciprocal and mutually beneficial partnerships between instructors, students, and community groups. The goal is to address community-identified needs and ultimately create positive social change. Critical reflection is an essential component of community-based learning; it serves to enhance students' learning of course content, understanding of the community, and sense of civic agency.
Examples of Community-Based Learning:
- Service Learning Courses
- Engaged Courses
- Student Teaching
