Community-engaged learning is a valued part of the Duquesne education. Essentially, this is exactly what it sounds like: it's a teaching method (think of it like a 3D textbook) that your professor selected to help you learn by giving you the opportunity to work with community members to solve public problems. You will gain real world experience that not only enriches your learning, but also lets you provide real benefit to our local communities. The Pittsburgh region will become a part of your classroom, as you work alongside your classmates and community members to contribute to meaningful environmental and social change. Many Duquesne alumni discover that community engaged-learning helped them further their careers, providing them with ways to demonstrate valuable professional experience.
The Center for CETR is the administrative home of the community-engaged learning program and supports students in a number of ways. .
