What is Community Service-Learning (CSL)?

Community Service-Learning (CSL) encapsulates the University’s commitments to learning, discovery, and citizenship, and to connecting communities (Dare to Discover). 

By completing a number of courses with a CSL component, including our CSL-designated courses, students can earn a Certificate in Community Engagement and Service-Learning upon graduation.

The program also offers opportunities for students to serve as interns on local non-profit boards, and for U of A staff and graduate students to teach courses to adults facing barriers to education through the Humanities 101 program.

Here is Lesley Cormack, Dean of Arts, speaking about CSL:
