Community-Based Studies

The Center for Community-based Studies (CCBS) at Penn State Altoona engages students in real-world problem-solving opportunities that tap the knowledge, skills, and perspectives they are developing in their academic studies. Through course-embedded group projects or as independent, faculty-guided research, students work with community organizations to identify, prioritize, and/or implement solutions to challenges facing the region. Students have a wide range of opportunities to “get their hands dirty” working with faculty and community members to address real-world issues and problems.
