Community-based learning, open to all academic disciplines, emphasizes academic rigor, reflection, and the development of ongoing community partnerships. Campus Ministries’ Center for Service and Social Justice works with over 120 non-profit organizations in the Scranton area. We’ve developed long-standing relationships with many agency partners. We invite these agencies to our annual volunteer and service fair every Fall as a means for them to meet with you and your students. We maintain updated current contact information of local agencies on our website.

Campus Ministries' Center for Service & Social Justice offers its services to faculty wanting to integrate community-based learning into their syllabi in the following ways:

  • Coordination of Service Sites - see our List of Community Partners and Agencies
  • Presentations to Classes
  • Reflection Resources
  • Clearances and Transportation
  • Student Preparation
  • Course Integration in Collaboration with CBL office
