Welcome to Planning Week 2022

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 22, is co-sponsored by the SGA and the Kernodle Center for Civic Life. 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.

University Directory Photographs

For a new or replacement University Directory Photograph, University Communications takes directory portraits of faculty and staff in open sessions each month. No appointment is necessary, simply just drop in during a session that suits you. They are indoors and unmasked, so you must be fully vaccinated. The portraits are taken from chest up on a gray backdrop in a photo studio.


The studio is located in the south end of Alumni Gym. Those arriving for portrait sessions should enter through the East Haggard Avenue entrance to Alumni Gym, and the studio is to the left.

Tuesday, August 16: 2 to 4 p.m.
Wednesday, August 17: 10 a.m to 12 p.m.
