at Massasoit Community College

What is The Center for Experiential Learning?
The Center for Experiential Learning (CEL) at Massasoit Community College is a resource for students, faculty, and business and community partners who wish to receive and/or provide experiential learning opportunities that enhance student learning, integrate theory and practice, and promote professional development and active citizenship. The CEL is the central point of contact for connecting our business and community partners with our students, faculty, and staff.

Experiential learning is learning by doing – applying theory to practice, usually in activities that occur outside the classroom.

Our goal is to expand our community partnerships to provide the real-world learning experiences that prepare our students to be valuable members of the workforce, lifelong learners, and good citizens.

Experiential learning initiatives at Massasoit include internships and civic engagement projects.

What is an internship?
An internship is an educational experience in which a student works in a position related to his or her career interests and, through observation and reflection, links that work experience to classroom learning. Internships can be paid or unpaid and credit-bearing or noncredit-bearing.
What is civic engagement?
Civic engagement is volunteer work that improves communities and addresses social problems.  Civic engagement enables students to learn in context, makes learning meaningful, and helps increase college success rates.
