Community Based Learning

The RCLC has partnered with the Center for Social Concerns (the CSC) from its inception by promoting community-based learning opportunities at its site. With support from the CSC, the Center has a designated community-based learning coordinator who provides information, support, and reflection to both volunteers and faculty interested in participating in this powerful experiential education model.
Approximately 50 undergraduates and graduates participate in community-based learning through Center programs. Participants are referred through faculty partners in the following disciplines: Freshman Composition, Peace Studies, Theology, Entrepreneurship, Management, and Psychology. Participants focused generally in the areas of youth tutoring at the center, or through Take Ten in one of the area schools involved in this violence-prevention effort.
