CEL for students

Community-engaged learning in action
UVic co-op student Lyndsee Thompson (political science, centre), spent a co-op term working with Me to We in Kenya as a Junior Kenya Trips Facilitator. Thompson developed friendships with Dorothy and Sharon, students from Kipsongal Primary School, while she worked in the community. Thompson is just one of many UVic students making a difference through community-engaged learning experiences.

How community-engaged learning (CEL) benefits community and students

You can make a vital impact on the community through contributing your skills, enthusiasm and knowledge to community endeavours. Community also plays a vital role in enhancing your learning experiences by guiding you through real-life projects that directly relate to your studies.
