Community Based Learning

Community Based Learning (CBL)

Director: P. Glavanis

The CBL Program at AUC aims to support and foster Community-Based Learning, which is a methodology that advances articulated learning goals through student service to a partner community. Launched from the classroom and lectures, readings, and discussions, students apply academic theories and innovative thinking in co-developmental, hands-on service with local, Egyptian, and international communities. Students reflect on the changes within themselves, within the partners they’ve worked with, and within the community at large to assess the impact of civic engagement and responsibility on self, others, and the world.


Community-Based Learning courses are designated as “Course Title : Community-Based Learning” on the Schedule for Classes/Registrar. (ex: “Grant Writing: Community-Based Learning”)
