Champlain has long maintained a commitment to addressing issues of social justice and environmental stewardship in Burlington and beyond. Our community partners tell us they benefit from our support and involvement. We know that students value the experience of making a difference through learning.
Champlain recognizes that more intentional, productive, and educational service can happen when it is integrated with sustained reflective learning. Energized by this insight, the Center for Service and Sustainability focuses primarily on experiential learning and working collaboratively toward a better, flourishing world for all generations.
The Center for Service and Sustainability offers opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to engage in service, and oversees Sustain Champlain, Champlain's campus sustainability initiative. The Center combines community service with academic instruction by immersing students in critical, reflective thinking and integrating their program, Core, and extra-curricular learning.
