Community-based learning incorporates real-world experiences to enhance students' academic and personal explorations. In the Rubenstein School, a large portion of our community-based learning opportunities for students comes in the form of service-learning courses. Service-learning is a teaching philosophy that combines service in the community with classroom instruction and focuses on personal reflection and development of civic and personal responsibility.
