Community Service-Learning is a refreshing university experience because it dares to colour outside the lines of the classroom. Alisha Harkness, Student
Sociology of Aging provides students with knowledge. Sociology of Aging with CSL ignites students' passion for knowlege. Kimberly Ellis-Hale, Professor
We have found working with CSL student volunteers to be an interesting and useful experience. It has been interesting because the students bring a novel perspective to our efforts and are conscientious in working out how to reach an objective. It has been useful because they have done work that has helped us to fulfill our mandate. John Dunbar, Community Partner
