Center for Community Engagement

The Center for Community Engagement supports faculty and students as they put their ideas to work in the world.

The Center fosters collaboration and innovation across campus and in the community, through initiatives that link experience with theory and reflection. We support community-based learning, undergraduate research, internships, creative endeavors and other educational activities. Our work is done in partnership with groups both on and off campus, in particular the Loeb Center for Career Exploration and Planning and the Center for Teaching and Learning.

Experiential Learning

Learning by doing intentionally links direct experience with analysis and critical reflection. It is designed to support learning, inquiry, and action inside and outside of the curriculum.
