Community Service-Learning (CSL) at Laurier integrates meaningful community engagement with classroom instruction and critical reflection, enriching your learning experience while strengthening communities for the common good.
Courses with a CSL component require you to attend class, complete assignments and regularly engage with a community partner placement opportunity or project throughout the term. Students have told us that having the opportunity to connect their academic work with real-life learning was the best part of their university experience!
