Through what we call Community Based Learning Courses students have an opportunity to enhance their classroom learning by working in and with the community. Students who take advantage of these courses can expect to not only gain substantive insight into the complex and real-world issues facing our society, but will also come away with honed leadership and critical thinking skills, which are valuable to future employers.

We are proud to say that community based learning is part of every Drexel student's education. In 2012, Drexel University, through the Lindy Center, launched a new model of introducing first-year students to civic engagement through a required course.
