Placing Siena students in partnership with the poor and marginalized provides a context for the knowledge they learn at Siena and brings to life the Franciscan Tradition as a hallmark of a Siena education. 

Community Engaged Teaching and Learning (CETL) at Siena includes all forms of academic teaching and learning in which learning outcomes of an academic course or project are met in whole or in part through meaningful service to a community-based organization. The CETL Program assists Faculty through training, design assistance, managing community partner relations, identification of community partner needs, building CETL networks of faculty across the region, and student and community partner training and development.

More than 30 Siena faculty members have been trained using the Problem Based Service Learning Model and subsequently in the semesters between January 2009 and today twenty-seven service learning courses have been taught and approximately 500 students having participated in service leaning projects. The disciplines in which service learning courses are taught vary among all three of the schools. In the school of business, 6 faculty members have taught 15 CETL courses, with 14 different community partners. In the school of Liberal Arts 12 faculty members have taught 14 CETL courses with 14 different community partners. In the school of Science 5 faculty members have taught 5 CETL courses with 3 different community partners.
