Any faculty member can
employ CbSL pedagogy in any DePaul course.
Doing so transforms the course into a dynamic space for teaching at the
intersections of experiential and other texts.
Service learning provides the opportunity for co-learning and
co-teaching with communities seeking social justice.
Perhaps the greatest
benefit was that issues we discussed in class weren’t abstract to the
students. They were experiencing them
-Dr. Miles Harvey,
CbSL courses are one option for fulfilling
DePaul's Experiential Learning (EL) requirement, featuring twenty five hours of

learning deepens student learning and enhances their sense of social justice engagement
with and learning in communities.
