CSL Course Offerings

Below is a listing of Fall 2017 Community Service-Learning (CSL) course offerings. For complete course descriptions, consult the undergraduate academic calendar or the individual program webpages.

Time Commitment

CSL placements are approximately 10 weeks and take place on a weekly basis. For one CSL course most placements will be two hours per week.

Please note for many CSL courses, the CSL component is a pass/fail requirement and requires extra time from you outside of scheduled class time and weekly throughout the entire term.

Placements

You will receive an invitation to join the CSL portal. Log in to the CSL portal using the link provided to you on MyLearningSpace. Search for service-learning positions that have been linked with your course.

If you are a commuter, you can find your own placement close to home. You must review the criteria for self-initiated placements first. If it meets those criteria, you can sign up for that placement using the CSL portal.

Options

You can choose options to enhance your degree that take you a step beyond community service-learning.

The Community Engagement Option offers you the opportunity to learn through practical experience projects at a not-for-profit community organization, The Working Centre, and reflect on this engagement in class.

The Social Entrepreneurship Option is designed for students looking to tackle the issues facing society today with sustainable business solutions.

If you register for any of the following courses, you will receive information about signing up for a placement during the first week of classes.
