Special Projects and Independent Studies

Mount Holyoke students are encouraged to work with the Community Based Learning program to advance special project initiatives, develop public partnership events, and pursue advanced learning or service projects based on the partnership work they launch with area community organizations via CBL coursework, C.A.U.S.E. volunteer efforts, and other activities.

Examples of such work might include hosting social justice oriented workshops or issue-oriented events open to the public on campus or in the community. Or such work might involve advanced study such as the pursuit of a community-based research project or developing a school-based or afterschool program for the K-12 curriculum. Such projects may seek advice, financial support, or academic supervision or co-supervision from the Community-Based Learning Program Director.
