Community based learning (CBL) is a cornerstone of all undergraduate programs in the College of Education.  Our students are able to make valuable connections between the theoretical content of their coursework and the practice that they observe in early learning classrooms.  These important theory-to-practice connections are supported by classroom teachers who serve as mentors to our students and allow them to practice what they are learning through interactions with children.

In addition to the community based requirements in our degree programs, the College of Education supports additional opportunities for undergraduates to engage in CBL, including community service and collaborative research.
