Students who participate in CSL are likely to gain more from their placement experiences if they take time to understand the social, economic, and political context of the non-profit sector. We encourage all students and instructors to read a short primer on the Non-Profit Sector before participating in CSL. In some CSL courses, instructors require students to read and respond to this handout and/or other resources as part of their course assignments.
