In community-engaged learning courses, students go beyond the classroom, seeing firsthand how theory and practice connect in the real world. They collaborate with communities—in Ithaca and around the globe—to design, implement and evaluate real solutions to real problems. These academically rigorous courses advance knowledge within specific fields of study while challenging students to grow as global citizens.
