Welcome to CEAL

The Center supports and helps generate academically grounded community-based learning opportunities. We work directly with faculty, students, staff and local communities to enhance partnerships and to foster a culture of mutual benefit. CEAL enhances and supports engaged learning pedagogies and programs, facilitates coordination of existing partnerships, and promotes new synergies around engaged learning. Housed in the College of Literature, Science and the Arts, CEAL provides resources for faculty seeking best practices, course models, guidance on developing authentic relationships with community members, and administrative support. In addition to supporting projects led by individual LSA faculty, the Center fosters collaboration on engaged learning throughout Central Campus. Currently situated in East Quad, CEAL is a vibrant hub for these and many other opportunities such as:

  • Curricular development
  • Course design consultation
  • Student trainings and workshops on critical community engagement
  • Internship opportunities
  • Grant writing¬†consultation
  • Program assessment and evaluation
  • Community-centered research
