Service and purpose through experiential learning

The Center for Academic Service-Learning (CASL) promotes and supports the integration of service-learning into the Cal Lutheran curriculum. Service-learning exposes students to real-world applications of their course work and gives them the opportunity to discover their purpose through community service and civic engagement.

What We Do

Provide resources for faculty to build service-learning into their courses and successfully secure funding to facilitate experiential learning and field work.

For Faculty

Encourage students to enroll in service-learning classes and continue their engagement with our community partners beyond the semester's end to the advantage of their future outlook.

For Students

Inform community partners about the benefits to their organization of participating and them connect with faculty to find opportunities for students to learn by doing.
