ProCES: New Name, Expanded Mission

Friday, Sep 7, 2018

The Community-Based Learning Initiative (CBLI) has a new moniker: The Program for Community-Engaged Scholarship (ProCES). The new name highlights our expanded vision for service in the curriculum that builds on twenty years of CBLI's successful, pioneering work. 

ProCES now supports over 25 service-oriented courses per semester that incorporate a broader range of models for integrating service in the classroom including service opportunities linked with coursework, historical and theoretical reflection on service, content that helps students explore and formulate responses to pressing societal issues, and community-based research.

ProCES has summer research internship opportunities for rising sophomores that are connected to the new Service Focus program. ProCES also manages the curricular component of Service Focus, advising over 75 students as they select service-oriented courses that will extend their learning from their summer service experience.  

ProCES can now offer increased support for students interested in community-engaged independent work with the addition of a third team member

ProCES connects the curriculum to Princeton's signature commitment to service. Trust the ProCES!
