The Office of Connected Learning Team

The Office of Connected Learning includes: Community-Based Learning and Research, Global Initiatives, the Collarboratory, Undergraduate Research & Creative Practice, and the Environmental Education & Research Center at St. Edward.

Location: Truly House with some scheduled hours at the Student Success Center for advising.

Most staff are beginning a hybrid work schedule beginning in September 2021. The best way to contact them is through email. If you call the phone numbers listed, you will be asked to leave a voicemail. Your voicemail will be translated to text and delivered to staff members through email, where they will follow up with you soon after.
