Center for Experiential Learning

Serving as the central coordinating point for the college's co-curricular activities that promote professional, social and civic development, the Center for Experiential Learning (CEL) was established in 2010. Comprised of three professional offices, Career Services, Internships and the Meelia Center for Community Engagement, the center strives to be the institutional leader in developing students to become ethical leaders for a global society.

Through applied transformative experiences and programs, CEL prepares Saint Anselm College students to be professionally resilient ethical leaders and global citizens. Through collaborations with faculty, alumni community, and business partners, CEL provides innovative learning opportunities while addressing societal interests and needs.

CEL Strives to:

  • serve as a cohesive campus unit that governs all aspects of experiential education
  • foster engaged learning opportunities for our students by strengthening partnerships with community based organizations; local, national, and international businesses; government and non-profit agencies and alumni/ae
  • showcase the college's commitment to fostering civic engagement amongst our students
  • enhance the professional development of our students through interconnected campus partnerships beyond the classroom
  • provide students with indiviualized and customized service
