About Us

The Community Based Learning Program at Mount Holyoke College serves students through courses, independent studies, internships, and research and service projects that combine learning and analysis with action and social change. Students learn about communities and learn to apply ideas, theories, and models to social issues in a practical context while gaining insights from practitioners in communities and in community-based organizations (CBOs). CBL enhances students’ understanding of social issues and concerns, and fosters leadership, citizenship, organizing, and advocacy skills. Among community partners, CBL fosters sustainable, mutually beneficial campus-community relationships that support capacity-building in area community organizations.
