The Jandon Center for Community Collaboration (JCCC) is
an organizational hub committed to working with communities
in partnership for shared learning and growth.

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

Apply for Support

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