Community-based learning, open to all academic disciplines, emphasizes academic rigor, reflection, and the development of ongoing community partnerships. The Center for Service and Social Justice works with over 100 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.

The 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

For more information, the University's Office of Community Based Learning offers additional resources for faculty.
