Through Community Service-Learning (CSL), U of A students leave the classroom and engage with their communities to make learning come alive. CSL helps you to make real-life connections between your education and everyday issues in the Edmonton community.
CSL is integrated into a broad range of Courses in areas such as gender studies, native studies, sociology, modern languages, political science, rural economy, business, and many others. To get involved, browse through the courses offering a CSL component, and register for a course that fits your interests and program of study.
Students complete 20 hours of service in one of more than one hundred different community organizations. (Hours replace time normally spent on other out-of-class activities such as library research or extra readings.)
Gain formal recognition of your CSL experience by applying for a Certificate in Community Engagement and Service-Learning, the only certificate of its kind in Canada!
Additional and invaluable leadership opportunities can be found through our Non-Profit Board Student Internship Program. Navigate your CSL journey with our Guidebook and Non-Profit Primer.
