The CCCE and Your Courses

Our students are learning in an ecosystem made of network of people and knowledge. Our task in taking learning outside of the classroom is to take a complicated issue on which reasonable people can disagree....and learn how to treat it with respect and nuance.

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. See the ACE Courses & Independent Study section for examples of past and current courses. If you’re considering or are already teaching an ACE Course, see the Getting Started page.

Use this form to request support from the CCCE (You can request things such as help with course design, transportation, funding, etc.). Please also feel free to stop by our offices in Sayles 150. For additional support, explore this section of the website to find resources surrounding course design, building and sustaining partnerships, reflection activities, and other aspects of academic civic engagement.

Additional General Resources

The Center for Community and Civic Engagement has an extensive collection of books about service, Academic Civic Engagement, and the ethics of "town-gown relations." Stop by the CCCE (Sayles 150) and take a look yourself!
