Most courses that integrate a community-based learning option or component use a database called EXPO. This database allows students, faculty, and community partners to organize, disseminate information, and connect with each other and community-based learning opportunities. The Office of Community-Based Learning and Research is happy to provide a presentation to your class on how to use this database. We have created this page to help provide some support on how to register and use the EXPO interface and to provide you access to forms and links that you'll need.
