Community Engaged Learning programs at La Salle exist to create and support meaningful educational experiences for students through direct engagement with the city, its resources, and its residents. Our programs invite students to experience the many cultural assets of our community, as well as to witness, critically reflect upon, and respond to its challenges. We aim to foster the kind of education that is at the heart of La Salle’s mission: one that empowers students to live fuller and more thoughtful lives, while working for the common good. Our Community Engaged programs take multiple forms:
Our Community Engaged Learning programs are always evolving to accommodate the interests of faculty and students, the needs of community partners, and shifts in scholarly perspectives on Community-Engaged Learning. Many of the faculty members trained through previous incarnations of our programs continue to embed those ideas into their courses.
