Welcome to Planning Week 2023

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 21, is co-sponsored by the SGA, the Staff Advisory Council, 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 on Monday, August 14, 2023 in Elon University’s Alumni Memorial Gymnasium, Koury Athletic Center. 

University Directory Photographs

All Elon faculty and staff members are encouraged to have their photo included in the university’s online directory. Please make plans to have a new or updated photograph taken. If you are new to Elon, if your photo is missing from the campus directory, or if your photo is more than three years old, please have a new photo taken by the Office of University Communications. No appointment is necessary, simply just drop in during a session that suits you. The portraits are taken from chest up on a gray backdrop in a photo studio.


The photo studio is now located in the southwest corner of Alumni Gym, close to West Haggard Avenue. Please enter through the external doors in the southwest corner of Alumni Gym, noted by a red star on this map.

  • Tuesday, Aug. 15: 2:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Aug. 16: 10:00 a.m.-noon
