Community-Based Learning


CSA's Community-Based Learning program supports students taking CBL classes for academic credit.

What is CBL?

  • Community-based learning is a form of service learning that provides students with hands-on experience in local non-profits.
  • CBL students engage in organized service activities, guided reflection, and critical analysis.
  • CBL students advance the LMU mission to educate the whole person by participating in experiential learning in diverse communities.
  • CBL students volunteer with community partners to build organizational capacity, fulfill their mission and enhance programs.
