CEC Resource and Training Modules

The Community Engagement Center has developed 12 Resource and Training Modules to provide support to faculty, staff, and students on the processes involved in Service Learning, Academic Internships, and the new Curricular Community Engaged Learning (CCEL) course designation.

These Resource and Training Modules highlight the value that Service Learning, Academic Internships and Curricular Community Engaged Learning have for our students, our campus and our community.

The modules underscore CEC’s commitment to supporting experiential learning opportunities and practices that enhance student learning, are mutually beneficial, and safeguard students, faculty, community partners, and the University.

Graduation Initiative: Experiential learning has been demonstrated to enhance student’s sense of engagement and belonging, leading to higher levels of degree persistence and higher levels of degree completion.
