Community Service-Learning (CSL) links academic coursework to community-based experiences. Students bring their time and talents to community organizations as part of their studies, challenging them to engage with their learning in fresh new ways and to explore relationships between theory and practice. CSL is integrated into a course through an ongoing and collaborative process. Community Partners describe their volunteer and research needs to us, and Instructors design their course projects and goals to integrate these community-based experiences into the course curriculum for students. Founded in 2004, CSL currently works with nearly 200 local Edmonton organizations and operates in approximately 80 courses across faculties each year.
