Sample Community-based Course Syllabi
For students and faculty, community participation and social engagement has improved critical thinking, commitments to the learning process, and skills of public leadership. For community members, service learning has made available the college's many resources of collaborative problem solving, academic research, and policy development. Because of this, service learning represents the best of Bowdoin's commitments to higher education and the common good.
