Connect over coffee with MSU Center for Community Engaged Learning staff to ask questions and to collaboratively brainstorm as you shape or enhance course-based community engaged learning experiences. Conversations may center on course design examples; community partnerships; developing syllabi; managing logistics; orienting students to enter a community with knowledge of identity, equity, and privilege; or considering diverse reflection strategies. Dedicate time to think and create, and leave with myriad resources, tools, and ideas.

Community-engaged learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community partnerships with instruction and critical reflection to enrich the student learning experience, teach civic and social responsibility, and strengthen communities. Implementation strategies range from direct service to advocacy to research to philanthropy, and more, which means no shortage of ways students can meaningfully engage with communities to explore social issues.
