Experiential education with social impact and justice at its core.

Community-Engaged Teaching and Research at Northeastern

Our team is housed under Educational Innovation in the Office of the Chancellor at Northeastern University. This offers our team an opportunity to engage with colleagues on and off campus in support of student experiential learning, the university’s community-engagement focus, as well as prioritizing alignment of all of this with community-identified goals.

Spring 2023 Virtual EXPO is Live! View Digital Artifacts Here

Digital Artifacts showcase the collaborations between faculty members, community partners, Service-Learning (S-L) students, and S-L student leaders. These collaborations happen within a service-learning course: a recognized form of experiential learning at Northeastern. To view this Spring 2023 digital artifact, visit our Virtual EXPO webpage!

Service-Learning Courses

Service-Learning (S-L) is a form of experiential learning for students and a teaching tool for faculty that purposefully integrates academics and service or community-engaged projects to meet classroom and community goals throughout the semester. As part of their coursework, students partner with community-based organizations, nonprofit organizations, schools, and government agencies as a way to learn the course material.

Partner with a community-engaged course

Our team supports 150+ community-engaged partnerships each semester, primarily through our community-engaged courses. Any social-change oriented entity can partner with our team, you do not need to be a formal 501(c)3 or school.
