We're here for you. Community Engaged Learning and COVID-19.
Our team is working from home and continuing our support of Community Engaged Learning (CEL) projects and placements. As winter courses come to a close online, we want to commend students who navigated changes to projects and experiences this term. We also want to express our sincere thanks to our community partners who supported students in completing and sharing their projects and ideas in virtual formats.
As we begin to reflect on this term and look ahead to partnering with you again, we wanted to capture and share some of our discoveries and recommendations from the transition to online CEL.
As always, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org at any point and let us know how we can help you.

Community Engaged Learning (CEL) allows students the opportunity to take their skills beyond the walls of the classroom and into the community. CEL experiences partner students with groups, individuals, and organizations in the London region and abroad to tackle important problems and issues. At the heart of this work is the promise of community-driven problem solving, collaboration, and mutually beneficial outcomes for students and community partners alike. Our programming ensures that students reflect, connect, and thrive.
