CBL Course Designation Process:

The CBL designation stands for Community-Based Learning and it indicates that the course involves a community-based teaching strategy, such as service-learning or community-based research. Any existing courses can apply for the designation. The CBL experience in the course can be either required or optional for students. A course can receive the CBL designation for individual sections of a course or for individual faculty or instructors. Community partnerships in CBL designated courses are with non-profit organizations, for-profit organizations (that serve the needs of the community), and public entities such as the city parks and recreation department, and public health department.
