For Faculty and Staff
ACT and Your Courses
Many courses at Carleton include a service-learning or experiential learning component, and many students have done research in Northfield or nearby (or faraway!) communities. The website above has information on Academic-Civic Engagement (ACE), examples of past and current courses, and ways to get involved.
ACT and Your Students
Volunteering with ACT can provide great experience for students, and relevant to coursework or their major. See examples of community research comps projects and ACT programs that relate to academic work at our Academics page.
The ACT Center has an extensive collection of books about service, Academic-Civic Engagement, and the ethics of "town-gown relations". Stop by the ACT Center (Sayles 150) and take a look yourself!
