We gain so much from the community that surrounds us — culture, history, diverse perspectives, partnerships with businesses and organizations. And for all that we get, we aim to give back even more. It’s a beautiful friendship, 150 years on.

There are a number of ways we connect with the community, from offering summer camps and teacher workshops to extensive community service engagements and activities.

Community Learning Opportunities

You don’t have to be a CBU student to learn at CBU. We offer numerous opportunities for community members to learn with us and to do something fun and educational to do over your summer break.

A Service-Oriented Mindset

We take the plight of the poor and victims of injustice seriously, and respond to their needs through programs of community service, advocacy, and justice education. This Lasallian ideal of “Enter to Learn, Leave to Serve” is not only printed on all our doors — it’s engrained in the hearts and minds of our students, faculty and leadership.
