This symposium is different than others you may have attended. It is designed to be participatory, inclusive, interactive, and critical. Throughout the planning process and the event itself, we strive to embody critical community-based learning principles.  

Now in its 3rd year, the 2019 CCBL Symposium will have a specific focus on place-based critical pedagogies, using case-studies from our own Portland community.  It is proudly hosted as a collaboration between Portland State University, Portland Community College, and Campus Compact of Oregon.
