Faculty Institute on Community Engaged Learning and Teaching (CELT)

Community engagement. Public engagement. Service-learning. No matter what you call it, it’s a proven way to enhance student learning while making a positive difference in partner communities. Are you interested in making your course an engaged one? At CELT, you’ll learn how to turn that interest into action.
