WHAT COMMUNITY-BASED LEARNING IS The Donelan Office of Community-Based Learning facilitates opportunities for students to connect academic learning with civic engagement. Students enrolled in Community-Based Learning courses extend their learning beyond the classroom through service and research projects that benefit our partner organizations in Worcester.
