Welcome to Planning Week 2021

Elon will once again participate in collecting school and personal hygiene supplies for K-12 Alamance County students experiencing homelessness. Please support the education of young people in our county. This effort, which will continue through August 23, is co-sponsored by the SGA and the Office of The Dean of Students. More information about drop off procedures will be emailed to faculty and staff.

Events of Planning Week will begin in Elon University’s Convocation Center, the Schar Center. Please feel free to preview information and view a fly-through of the Schar Center, named for Elon parents, Dwight and Martha Schar, prior to the events on Monday morning.

Parking will be available behind the Schar Center, and you are welcome to park there. A map of the facility including designated entrances can be found here.
