How CSL and Learning Exchange became established in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside

Part memoir, part archive and part call to think more deeply about how to approach social change, www.margofryer.ca tells the story of how Community Service Learning became a strategic priority for UBC and how the Learning Exchange became established in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Margo Fryer offers reflections on topics such as community-university engagement and how it can work, social innovation and how to achieve organizational change, and social marginalization and how it can be addressed.

The site contains rich detail on how UBC’s CSL programs developed including written reflections from  students, examples of CSL projects, and analysis of the factors that contributed to the institutionalization of CSL at UBC and the resilience of partnerships with community organizations.
