The Carleton Committee on Community Engaged Pedagogy (CCEP) comprises a group of faculty, professional staff and community-minded individuals who share an interest in promoting student learning and engagement through a variety of means that connect students and their community. These techniques include experiential learning, community service learning, and community based research.

Carleton has a long history of engaging community partners in research, co-operative education and volunteerism. Community Engaged Pedagogy (CEP) is a method of experiential learning that emphasizes action, reflection and real-world engagement. Much more than just volunteerism, CEP is a pedagogy that supports students in the development of skills and civic citizenship through combining community work with classroom learning.

The goal of Carleton University’s CEP program is to encourage students to participate in service in order to create linkages between academic study and larger public life, and to better understand their roles as global citizens. Many of Carleton’s faculty have embedded community-based learning in their coursework and the university continuously explores opportunities to work with community partners on a number of initiatives.
