BC Rural Community Based Learning Fund

The BC Rural Community Based Learning Fund enables faculty to give students the opportunity to learn outside of the classroom in collaboration with partners in BC’s rural and northern communities.

 

The BC Rural Community Based Learning Fund is a joint initiative of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and the Centre for Community Engaged Learning. The Fund enables faculty to give students the opportunity to learn outside of the classroom and to develop and apply their discipline-specific skills and knowledge. Students will work in collaboration with partners in BC’s rural and northern communities to resolve complex community challenges.
