Community-based teaching and learning is embraced by schools and departments across Washington University.
Often referred to as service-learning, key elements include learning activities in service to an organization or community, course content and assignments connected to that partnership, and faculty oversight.
To nurture growth in this area, the Institute offers technical and financial assistance, individual consultation, and facilitation of community partnerships.
Washington University offers more than 75 courses that include a community-based component. Community-based teaching and learning courses (CBTL) offered in 2014-2015 can be found listed by school in the right-hand sidebar.
