Courses & Scholarship

Community-based learning courses connect students to communities for the purpose of deepening learning. Community-based learning can include a variety of modes, including volunteering, collaborative projects, clinical education, and study trips. The Bonner Center for Civic Engagement supports all community-based learning courses at the University of Richmond, many of which center around larger initiatives.
