CEL Designation Proposal

The CEL designation on courses stands for Community Engaged Learning and simply indicates that the course involves a community-engaged learning teaching strategy such as service, democratic engagement or community research.

Some key things to keep in mind: 

  • Any existing course at WSU may work for this designation.
  • The CEL experience in the course may be required or optional for students.
  • Individual sections of courses may require the CEL designation for individual instructors or all sections of a course may receive the CEL designation if all sections, regardless of instructor, offer a CEL experience to students.
  • Community partnerships in CEL-designated courses are with non-profit organizations or for-profit organizations that serve the underserved and marginalized populations or that need assistance with social justice issues also qualify.
