Community-based learning (CBL) is an opportunity for students to apply their knowledge and skills to real-world experiences while serving their communities. Students earn CBL credits in designated courses. This means that students can earn CBL credit as part of the overall college learning experience.
Professors and community partners work together to develop projects that allow students to enhance their classroom knowledge, develop leadership skills, network with community leaders, and meet identified community needs.
CBL credits can be applied toward the CBL certificate, in addition to regular earned course credits. The CBL certificate is a 12-credit/four-course certificate that promotes student understanding of community needs, facilitates networking opportunities, and looks great on a resume whether applying for future employment or graduate school.
CBL projects can become part of a final professional portfolio.
