Community Based Learning (CBL) Courses provide students with the opportunity to enhance their classroom learning by working within the community. Students who participate in CBL courses can gain substantive insight into the complex and real-world issues facing our society, and will also have the opportunity to develop 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 CIVC101, a required course.
