In 2011-2012, 16 Macalester departments offered 59 courses with civic engagement components.
Macalester is a long-time leader in linking academic learning to community involvement. High quality community-based learning (CBL) brings forth multiple layers of learning, teaching and problem solving.
Student work--such as tutoring, research, analysis or problem solving--holds reciprocal benefits for the students and the community partner. Aligning learning objectives with an existing community need is a critical step in these real world, engaging learning experiences.
