Community Work and Learning staff support faculty in developing, implementing and evaluating academic service-learning into their courses. Working across disciplines and degree levels, we support faculty to integrate meaningful community experiences into their course objectives. We work collaboratively to support and balance student learning outcomes with community needs.
