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.
WHAT THE STUDENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR The interns are student leaders who serve as a liaison between the Donelan Office, community partners, and CBL students and faculty. They have a variety of responsibilities, including promoting CBL opportunities to faculty and other students; leading reflection sessions for students in CBL courses; and working with faculty, students, and community organizations to organize CBL placements and projects.
WHAT THEY’RE BLOGGING ABOUT All about Community-Based Learning at Holy Cross. They’ll describe their CBL courses, their roles at different community organizations, and the learning and personal development they’ve gained from engaging in CBL.
WHY THEY’RE BLOGGING To create a dialogue with current and prospective CBL students. They’ll raise and discuss thought-provoking questions about social justice issues. And they welcome readers’ comments and questions!
