A community-based learning (CBL) course is a credit-bearing educational experience that integrates meaningful community engagement with guided reflection to enhance students’ understanding of course content, as well as their sense of civic responsibility.
CBL is considered a high impact practice and national research shows these courses have many benefits, including deeper learning, better understanding of content, and increased personal growth. Plus – research done at UW-Madison found that over 90% of students got more out of their CBL course than a traditional course.
Next spring, CBL courses are offered in over 30 departments, including Art, Social Work, Computer Science, Community and Environmental Sociology, Environmental Studies, Life Sciences Communication and many more.
