Committee on Academic Service Learning (CASL)

​​In September 2010 the Academic Senate approved the creation of the Committee on Academic Service Learning. This committee works to provide, “a more comprehensive, programmatic structure and mission for Academic Service-Learning at CMU.” The committee will serve in an advisory capacity to the campus community by actively supporting and encouraging the use of service-learning. In addition, the committee will work to improve the communication, coordination, accountability, data collection and working relationships with regards to service-learning here at CMU and within the greater community. 

For more information on the CASL please review the committee charge or contact the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning at (989) 774-3615.
