Here you can find information on community-based learning or volunteering in the Greater Duluth community. Whether you are meeting a course requirement or volunteering out of your own interest, our student webpage is intended to answer questions, provide resources, and help you get involved.

Do you need an i.d. badge? Please visit our office in Bohannon 209, Mon-Fri, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Be sure to have your U Card with you. Badges are provided to students whose faculty work with the OCE to embed community-based learning in their courses.
