In the Community Service Learning (CSL) programme of VU Amsterdam, students and lecturers address real-world challenges in collaboration with societal actors. Through this experience, students develop skills that are crucial for their future careers, while driving positive transformations in society. Because of these features, CSL is incorporated in the VU strategy as part of A Broader Mind.
The Community Service Learning approach can be modified to most courses with a practice-related component, throughout all faculties. In this toolbox, you will find a collection of practical resources and tools that will help you engage with societal actors and integrate CSL in your education.
