Center for Community-Based Studies

A Unique Approach to Higher Learning

Penn State Altoona’s Center for Community-Based Studies (CCBS) is an interdisciplinary community learning laboratory that facilitates academically-grounded, real-world problem-solving opportunities for undergraduates. Students work closely with organizations and individuals in the community while applying the skills, perspectives, and knowledge gained through formal academic study to issues that matter in our region.

Students and faculty members from all academic disciplines are invited to participate in identifying, planning, and implementing projects that are deeply educational and broadly beneficial to the community.
