CSL Peer Facilitators
Through the Peer Facilitator program, second year medical students provide guidance to first year students as they explore the Community Service Learning curriculum. Facilitators are resources for questions, trouble-shooting issues with projects, and leading reflection in CSL Small Group discussions.
CSL Steering Committee
The CSL Steering Committee includes representation from students, faculty, and staff from both Tufts School of Medicine and Tisch College. This group created the CSL program in 2008, developed the course's learning objectives, and continues to provide guidance and advisement on the program’s growth and development.
