A diverse urban community provides an ideal real-world learning lab for students.  This panel of faculty and community agencies will talk about the process of developing community-based learning experiences through service learning, internships, research and alternative break projects. The goal of these projects is to introduce students to the complexity of community needs and encourage students to become engaged members of society. Community-engaged learning also has a positive impact on retention and student success.  Topics for the panel include: 
• how faculty and community agencies find each other
• how to create projects that are useful to the agency and are also learning experiences for students
• how the university can help and support these endeavors
• how to manage the relationship between the university and community agency
• how to deal with logistics and liability issues
• how these projects have enhanced student success and university reputation
