Direct Service experiences often involve working directly with community residents to meet an immediate need. Examples of direct service include, but are not limited to: volunteering to serve meals at a homeless shelter, using academic knowledge to develop an electronic food-monitoring database for a food pantry, serving as a mentor or tutor in a local school or youth development program, cleaning up the banks of the Ogden River, or coaching a city youth sport.
Civic engagement experiences often involve raising awareness about issues of public concern and working more systematically through both political and non-political processes to create change. Examples of civic engagement include, but are not limited to: attending organized discussions about pollution; community organizing; writing a letter to an elected official; engaging others in the process of deliberative democracy; or producing information about community issues.
Community research experiences often involve gathering information with and for community organizations to solve a pressing community problem or create change. Examples of community research include, but are not limited to: community needs assessment survey; water quality or scientific assessment; or program evaluation for non-profit organizations.

Regardless of the type of community engaged learning experience, students are expected to acquire four CEL outcomes through their experiences: civic knowledge, civic skills, civic values, and civic action.
