Check them out on the Careers page.

Community Service-Learning

The Faculty of Arts has developed a Community Service Learning program, where you gain hands-on experience for course credit! We link academic coursework to community-based experiences. Students bring their time and talents to community organizations as part of their studies, challenging them to engage with their learning in fresh new ways and to explore relationships between theory and practice.

When enrolled in a CSL class, students participate in a community project that is both relevant to the course content and useful to the partnering non-profit organization.
