How community-engaged learning fits in the classroom

As a faculty or staff member, you can play a vital role in integrating community-engaged learning (CEL) opportunities into course work. Student learning is enhanced by critical reflection on community engagement and course content. Through these experiences, you and your students can make a vital impact on the community through contributing skills, enthusiasm and knowledge to community endeavours.
