Community-Based Learning

“Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” — Martin Luther King, Jr.

What is community-based learning?

• Service and Learning

Why should I think about making community-based learning part of my undergraduate education?

Because…

• I can develop my potential to be a leader for justice! (You can also do a Social Justice (SJCE) minor!)

• I can learn course content through experience.

• I can do International Service in Haiti or Guatemala and learn what it means to be a global citizen.

How is community-based learning related to choosing a major or developing a profession?

• Practical experience is the best teacher.

• Civic engagement broadens knowledge of the world.

• Applying knowledge to real life situations clarifies goals and directions for life.
