Community-Engaged Learning

Community-engaged learning is an aspect of the university's broad-based commitment to experiential learning. By integrating hands-on practice and thoughtful reflection, CEL projects enhance the university's commitments to social justice and academic rigor.

In this spirit, the Russian program is developing a community-engaged learning initiative that allows our students to develop language skills while providing valuable social support to Russian-speaking elderly residents of the Hebrew Rehabilitation Center in Roslindale, Mass.

This project is open to both heritage and traditional students at the advanced level of language proficiency (at least five semesters of Russian language). For more information about course design, academic credit and registration details, please contact Irina Dubinina.
