For Community Partners



CSL has over 250 community partners representing sectors that support our local communities in which our campuses reside, including education, government, community-based, not-for profit/social profit, culture, and environment.  Some of our partners have had many years of experience in connecting with Laurier students through the CSL program.  

Goals

  • Benefit the community organization and the individuals that they serve.
  • Give students the opportunity to relate their experiences to the content of their course and enhance their learning.  
  • Provide students the opportunity to reflect on what it means to engage with others and be connected to a larger community.

Benefits

  • Provides access to the services and skills of university students.
  • Access to related theories and concepts students are learning about in the classroom.
  • Allows for program and service enhancements and expansions.
  • Provides opportunity for collaboration with post-secondary researchers and practitioners.
  • Provides an opportunity to contribute to the development of community leaders of the future.

The students who have chosen to work in the One-on-one English Tutor Program, at the Kitchener-Waterloo Multicultural Centre have been a remarkable help to so very many clients.  They demonstrate excellent time management, patience, organization, teaching and learning skills. Their diligence has been a huge contributor to the success of this program.
