The Periclean Scholars program at Elon University is the centerpiece of Project Pericles, which is committed to raising the level of civic engagement and social responsibility of the entire university community. Students who become part of the Periclean Scholars program take a series of courses (two per school year) culminating in a Class project of global social change. The project is designed and carried out by the cohort of students from each year's Class.
Periclean Scholar classes are small. Potential projects will be globally oriented, with the specific project chosen by each cohort. Imagine such projects as building a hospital in Honduras, or perhaps setting up access to potable water in Zambia.
