Spanish Community-Based Learning is in its 10th year at the Center for Social Concerns. Hear how the cohort of six faculty have worked with three key community partners to develop deep learning opportunities for students and help create positive impact in the community. Rachel Rivers Parroquín, director of Spanish community-based learning, will give a brief overview of the decade’s work. Elena Mangione-Lora will discuss the newest Spanish CBL course—having it three times—an introduction to translation and interpretation with a community translation focus. Students Amber Grimmer and Cynthia Trujillo will present on community impact research being conducted that gives voice to the community partners’ perspectives on our work.
