Encourage students to try Community Engaged Learning
As you advise students for the spring semester, encourage them to consider a community engaged learning course. In community engaged learning courses, students participate in community service, research or advocacy in a way that responds to a community need and gives them a rich opportunity for learning through experience. Students frequently say their community engaged learning courses are the most transformative experience of their college education.
All 11 Arches courses next semester offer community engaged learning experiences. And there are 13 other courses in seven departments for students to explore! Here's a list from Self Service. Students can help write a self-guided tour to the Museum of the City of New York, study Shakespeare or Criminal Justice ethics with incarcerated fellow students, or do water quality testing with the Friends of Van Cortlandt Park.
To learn more about community engaged learning, talk to Dr. Margaret Groarke or Kathleen von Euw.
