The Elon Experiences are a collection of dynamic programs that emphasize applying academic learning in experiential contexts through study abroad, service, internships, leadership, and undergraduate research. These experiences reflect Elon’s core values: an appreciation for cultural diversity, an ethic of service, a strong work ethic, a commitment to civic responsibility and a love of learning. Participation in the Elon Experiences is an essential part of every student’s preparation to be a lifelong learner and global citizen.
Faculty are encouraged to teach study abroad or service-learning courses, mentor students in research projects, supervise their leadership and internship experiences, and join in service done by campus organizations or the Kernodle Center.
