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.
