Community Engaged Learning

Community Engaged Learning (CEL) is a HIEE opportunity that will take place as part of your class.  CEL based courses are offered each semester through many academic departments across campus.  Students interested in CEL as an option should seek out CEL designated courses when registering for classes. CEL courses are a great way to  apply classroom knowledge to a need and get Wildcat Advantage credit. 
Students may also receive a Wildcat Advantage credit from service completed outside of the classroom or for a class that is not CEL desingnated.  This will require additional steps be completed by the student.
Students not actively enrolled in a CEL Designated Course will need to reach out to josephblake@weber.edu to learn more about how you can receieve credit for the Wildcat Advantage program.
