Service and purpose through experiential learning

The Center for Academic Service-Learning (CASL) promotes and supports the integration of service-learning into the Cal Lutheran curriculum. Service-learning exposes students to real-world applications of their course work and gives them the opportunity to discover their purpose through community service and civic engagement.
