Community Based Learning

Lasell’s Center for Community Based Learning provides support and opportunities for students, faculty and staff to engage with community organizations on mutually beneficial projects. Beyond the long-term projects, such as those with the Newton Public Schools, Lasell students also participated in several one-time community service events for a total of 1,653 hours involving 643 student attendees, over the last academic year.
