Mount Holyoke’s Community Based Learning Program links students with communities through courses, independent studies, internships, and research and service projects that combine learning Holyoke Boundand analysis with action and social change. Students learn to apply ideas and theories to social issues in a practical context while gaining insights from their Community Partners, who are practitioners in community-based organizations (CBOs). CBL enhances students’ understanding of social issues and concerns, and fosters leadership, organizing, and advocacy skills. Among community partners, CBL fosters sustainable, mutually beneficial campus-community relationships that support capacity-building in area community organizations.

This blog serves as a platform for all those involved in community engagement on and off our campus to share their stories. It also provides a space for faculty, staff, partners, and students to share their thoughts on and experience with community engagement and social justice.
