Community Service Learning courses

Sarah Ravlic (psychology), right, worked with the Saanich Volunteer Services Society as part of a Community Service Learning course.

We know how important it is to connect with community. That's why we've partnered with UVic faculties to offer Community Service Learning (CSL) courses for students. These full-credit courses allow you to complete 4 weeks of classroom theory followed by 7 weeks of volunteer community work in an area you're passionate about.

Current CSL courses
