Sustained Activism for Social Change

Elon University students are motivated, passionate and inspired to bring about change and social change comes in many forms. With contributions from the Council of Civic Engagement, the Center for Race, Ethnicity, & Diversity Education, the Center for Leadership, and the Kernodle Center for Civic Life you will find curated resources as you embark on your social change journeys. We invite you to visit our offices for additional resources and questions.
