Community-Based Learning Courses

Community-based learning (CBL) courses integrate significant community partnerships to meet actual community goals and advance academic learning. CBL courses at Smith span disciplines, topics and community partnerships as near as Northampton, and as far as India.

The Center for Community Collaboration (CCC) is committed to working with communities in partnerships for shared learning and growth. It is an organizational hub where faculty, students and community members will find support to facilitate their efforts to collaborate. The CCC supports faculty and students in teaching and learning that are engaged and reciprocal with the community.

Apply for Support

The CCC invites proposals from Smith faculty to support the revision of existing courses or the implementation of new courses to incorporate CBL pedagogy.
