Community Based Literacies (CBL) is an interdisciplinary, multicultural, and multilingual community of university students, staff, and faculty who position themselves as co-thinkers, co-researchers, co-designers, and co-creators with local youth and educators.
CBL programs invite members to explore, envision, and collaborate on a variety of literacy-driven topics and issues, particularly those relevant to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) within the context of environmental sustainability. The philosophy of CBL pedagogy foregrounds collaboration, support, and emotional connections among all members. As such, CBL has no hierarchy and actively stretches the boundaries of traditional notions of learning that integrates critical sociocultural issues for equity and social justice.
