Our Mission


CEAL’s mission is to promote pedagogical innovation through community-based learning (CBL) initiatives that help students become adaptive, creative and impactful in their engagement with the world.  

CEAL's Guiding Practices

Guided by the principle of reciprocity, we take an asset-based approach to working with communities and underscore the importance of leveraging both campus and community knowledge to address an array of local and global issues, including those related to literacy, youth empowerment, criminal justice, public health, advocacy, food access and environmental justice.
