The Community Involvement Center facilitates a Community-Based Learning Fellows Program to train faculty and staff members in service-learning (S-L) and community-based research (CBR) pedagogies.
The fall semester of each academic year is used to train people in the pedagogy and assist them in course construction via structured workshops. By semester's end, the CBL Fellow will have a revamped course containing a community-based learning component. The newly enhanced course can then be taught the following spring semester.
