About CBL Courses

CBL classes foster the ability to connect academic learning with action in the world by working with off-campus community organizations. They seek to benefit their partner organizations and our shared community by addressing a need or strengthening a capacity that serves the common good. In a CBL course, you apply what you learn to real-world problems, providing a “mini-internship” that gives you the opportunity for career exploration, experience working in diverse communities, and the chance to help build your professional network.
