Faculty Focus 2015: Community-Based Learning
To Sociology Professor Corey Dolgon, it’s no surprise that community-based learning (CBL) is thriving at Stonehill. Like a lecture or a lab experiment, it has become a critical teaching tool on a campus where solidarity with other communities is a way of life.
The work and the mission of the CSSJ is at the heart of the mission of Stonehill College. It is a place where faith and action, service and learning, research and conviction intersect. The pursuit of service and justice have been prominent components of a Stonehill College education since the institution’s founding in 1948. The Center for Service & Social Justice brings together under one umbrella structure the many offices, centers and academic programs that have over the years been devoted to the pursuit of justice.
The CSSJ will provide educational experiences in social concerns inspired by Gospel values and the Catholic social tradition so that students and faculty may better understand and respond to poverty and injustice. Through CSSJ programs students, faculty, staff, and alumni are enabled to think critically about today’s complex social realities and about their responsibilities in facing them.
