The Office of Community-Based Learning and Research (CBLR) was established with generous support from the Pieper Family Foundation.  The Pieper Chair in Servant Leadership directs the Office with administrative support from the Provost’s Office. The mission of the CBLR is to develop and support student leadership through programs that connect the academic curriculum and community service.

The CBLR provides funding and training to faculty interested in community-engaged research and teaching. We also work to connect faculty and community organizations and to raise the profile of community service and civic engagement on the Lawrence campus generally. A partial list of community organizations who have worked with Lawrence faculty on service learning projects includes:

  • Housing Partnership of the Fox Cities
  • Appleton Career Academy
  • Sustainable Fox Valley
  • Appleton Fire Department
  • Heckrodt Wetland Reserve
  • Boys and Girls Club of the Fox Valley
  • Building for Kids Children’s Museum
  • Riverview Gardens
