Community-Engaged Learning


Community engagement is central to the Jesuit educational mission and Loyola’s commitment to transformative student learning. CCSJ works to help students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels connect their academic work with community goals in mutually beneficial partnerships.

What is Community-Engaged Learning?
Community-engaged learning (also known as service-learning) is a collaboration between students and community members in order to learn from one another and build knowledge together. Students use their skills and course knowledge to support a local organization achieve their goals. In turn, the experiences students have outside the classroom enhance the learning that they are doing in class.

Below, you’ll find a list of upcoming community-engaged course at Loyola. If you have questions about these courses, please contact the instructor listed. For other questions about community engagement, contact Stephen Park, Faculty Director for Community-Engaged Learning and Scholarship.
