Welcome to The Center for Community-Based Learning

Founded in 2009, the Center for Community-Based Learning built upon UNF’s history of community engagement that began when the University was founded in 1972.  Currently the Center is UNF’s primary office to bring together faculty, students, and community partners in order to collaborate in the process of improving life in Jacksonville, Northeast Florida, and beyond.  


UNF is proud of its distinction as a Carnegie community engaged institution and adopts its core principle of reciprocity: UNF devotes its energies and resources so that knowledge, information and benefits flow in both directions between community partners and the University.


Community-Based Learning provides students with rich, real world opportunities that enhance student learning, personal development and civic involvement while also contributing to the enrichment and well-being of the greater Jacksonville community and beyond.
