Center for Community Learning

We have been a bridge to and from Western's campus and the Bellingham community for nearly 20 years. We hope you will join our team of students, faculty and community partner organizations who collaborate in creative ways to make Whatcom County, Washington State, the nation and the world a better place.

Through active learning, engaged teaching and meaningful partnerships we are working together to create positive social change.

Please enjoy our website and share your ideas with us.

See you in the community!
