Elon’s Civic Engagement Scholars Program

Over the course of two or three years  (depending on how a student organizes her/his schedule) students participate in course work, service-learning, seminars, service trips, and workshops that will engage them in understanding the needs of the local community and how to respond to these needs. Toward this end, students will serve in, study, and develop genuine partnerships with local community agencies over the course of their time in the program. The program will culminate in the students exploring multiple pathways (e.g., service, policy, public awareness/community education, and innovation/social entrepreneurship) through which they can make their own contribution to the local community in response to identified community needs.
