Community Engaged Learning (CEL) allows students the opportunity to take their skills beyond the walls of the classroom and into the community. CEL experiences partner students with groups, individuals, and organizations in the London region and abroad to tackle important problems and issues. At the heart of this work is the promise of community-driven problem solving, collaboration, and mutually beneficial outcomes for students and community partners alike. Our programming ensures that students reflect, connect, and thrive.
