All projects are based on principles in community-engaged learning (CEL). By combining diverse expertise and skills, faculty, staff, students, clients, and community members address global issues and help build a more sustainable, just, and collaborative future. Community-engaged learning projects can look very different, but they share four important criteria:
- Address a specific community interest, problem, or public concern;
- Include working with and learning from a community partner;
- Connect and integrate community-engaged experiences with educational content; and
- Include structured, documented critical reflection.
Clients are encouraged to learn more about community-engaged learning at Cornell on the Einhorn Center for Community Engagement website.
