    UC’s co-op learning program has long benefited students in subjects like engineering and computer science that have well-establish education-to-career pipelines. Recently UC has created a blend of co-op and service-learning to create similar opportunities for students in the arts and sciences. The results, even during the pandemic, have been outstanding.

  • Service-Learning Collaboratory

    Keywords: Course Description, Pedagogy, Course Design, Community Impact, Partnerships

    The Service Learning Collaboratory gives students the opportunity to explore and meet a community need as part of a cross-disciplinary team charged with completing a specific project. Each term, the model is the same but the subjects and collaborators change to cover a variety of industries and disciplines. Students can expect relatively little traditional lecture. Much of their learning occurs through interactions with peers, instructors, clients and expert guests. The result is student learning that is active, engaged, hands-on and real.
