Advanced Community Engaged Learning

pic2Beyond their First Year CEL experience, students are encouraged to find additional learning opportunities that also have a positive impact on the community. Currently, Advanced CEL primarily refers to all other non-FSP classes that allow students to apply their additional knowledge and enhanced skills to address a community need, as well as develop their own civic skills.

The Logistics

Advanced CEL classes call for students to complete at least 17 hours of community engaged learning work during the course of a given semester. The ideal class-based project or experience is one that substantially builds the capacity of the community partner organization, which can include public institutions, and thereby offers the student a more advanced applied learning opportunity.
