Many of our good practices are inspired by successful Community Service Learning Programs from abroad. The VU closely cooperates with universities in South Africa, where Community Service Learning is already an integral part of educational system. Furthermore, the VU has a collaboration with UCLA. This cooperation is primarily focused on joint Research Program and a student exchange program for first generation students. UCLA is also an inspiring example of how Community Service Learning can be integrated in the curriculum. UCLA organized a Center for Community Learning and has a Community Service Commission, founded by students. In the future we hope to be working closely with the Center for Community Learning from the UCLA.
