Community-Engaged Academic Learning

Welcome to the former home of Community Engaged Academic Learning. 

From 2014 - 2020, the office of Community Engaged Academic Learning (CEAL) was a tremendous asset to the college when there was a lack of coordinated campus support for providing services to faculty and students who desired to engage with communities. After a program review in 2019, some CEAL programs were combined with similar efforts across the University in 2020. Further, LSA formed a partnership with the Edward Ginsberg Center for Community Service and Learning to provide support and services to community-engaged LSA faculty and students. Ginsberg provides an equity-minded framework for engaging with communities while supporting students and faculty through building long-term relationships, emphasizing reciprocal benefits, and acknowledging power.
