Community and civic engagement is central to the Jesuit educational mission and Loyola’s commitment to transformative student learning. CCSJ works in partnership with Academic Affairs to help faculty and students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels connect academic endeavors with community goals in mutually beneficial partnerships.
Community-engaged learning and scholarship can include a range of academic community engagement, including service-learning, community-engaged research, course-based group service, and advocacy projects. We also offer internal funding programs and faculty development opportunities.
To learn more, contact Dr. Jean Lee Cole, Faculty Director of Community-Engaged Learning and Scholarship, or email CELS@loyola.edu.
