About Community-Engaged Learning
Established in 2005, our community-engaged learning program collaboratively engages faculty, students, and community stakeholders in responsible community work that provides opportunities for academic learning, civic development, and awareness of the injustices facing our world today.
Community-engaged learning, also called service-learning, is a teaching method that combines academic instruction, community engagement, and critically reflective thinking to promote student learning and civic responsibility. Explore community-engaged learning by learning more about the Duquesne values that drive community-engaged learning and our 40+ community-engaged learning classes.
Duquesne's community-engaged learning program is supported by the Center for Community-Engaged Teaching and Research (CETR), which is within the division of academic affairs and is guided by the service-learning advisory committee. The program has a number of signature initiatives to support students, faculty, and community partners.
