From an Alumna

Tamra Meisheid has this to say about her community-based learning experiences at Rockford University: "Community-based learning was an invaluable part of my undergraduate education. It was a unique experience, which taught me lessons that were not attainable in just a classroom setting. Those lessons remained with me through law school and even now as a practicing attorney. No other outlets exist for students to combine what they learn in the classroom with the real world.”

From an Agency
Here's what Northern Illinois Hospice and Grief Counseling Center wrote about our students who worked with the center in a community-based learning project: "The Rockford University nursing students more than met our expectations when they completed their community-based learning projects with us. They were always well-prepared and worked independently. We've certainly used their work to help us.”

From an Emeritus Professor
Dr. Christine Bruun, professor Emeritus of psychology, writes, "In my Psychological Disorders class (Psych 357), students volunteer a minimum of 12 hours of their time at Jubilee Center, a drop-in center for the mentally ill, where members take an ownership role in planning activities and policies. The psychology students participate at the center by engaging in conversation and activities with the members. They also assist the Psychology Society in hosting an annual Halloween party. Each year, both the members and students, almost unanimously, report how meaningful their interaction turns out to be.”
