Community Studies

Community Studies courses are no longer offered for credit toward a minor.  Students can continue to advance community-based learning and research as part of the general curriculum (e.g. COLL300), as an Independent Study capstone course (e.g. COLL400), or as an Honors Project.  The CFP for the W&M Community Studies Professorship will continue, in support of the pedagogy and research practice, and in support of active learning (with and within communities) in the curriculum.
