Center for Community Engaged Learning

Take a CEL Course at WSU

The "CEL" designation on a course stands for Community Engaged Learning and indicates that students will be engaging in meaningful community service that is connected to their specific course's academic objectives.

Taking a CEL course is a unique and exciting opportunity for you to apply what you learn in the classroom to the real world, while providing support for a community organization.

Good Engaged Learning Means:

  • You have a genuine interest in your project.
  • You share your knowledge and talents with clients at your service site while in turn learning from their knowledge and talents.
  • You reflect on your service experience continuously throughout the semester.
  • You actively apply what you are learning in your service experience to your course learning objectives.
  • You learn by doing.
  • You make a difference in the community!
