Community-Based Learning Initiative Courses - Fall 2018-2019

The Community-Based Learning Initiative (CBLI) is a curricular effort to connect students' academic work with their interest in and concern for the communities around the University. CBLI's mission is to make learning itself a genuine form of service. Community-based learning enriches course work by encouraging students to apply the knowledge and skills learned in the classroom to the pressing issues that affect our local communities. Working with faculty members and community leaders, students develop research projects, collect and analyze data, and share their results and conclusions, not just with their professors, but also with organizations and agencies that can make use of the information. Students can do such community-based work both in courses and, in a more in-depth manner, as part of junior or senior independent work. The courses below and many others have a community-based component and/or offer an opportunity to do a community-based research paper in partnership with local organizations.
