The mission of CELR is to foster quality experiential learning opportunities for students, support faculty with their community-based teaching and scholarship, and facilitate mutually beneficial campus-community partnerships. The CELR works with academic departments to increase the number and quality of service-learning course offerings in all disciplines across campus and support faculty as they work to incorporate service-learning and community based research courses in undergraduate education, from freshman gateway courses to senior capstones.
