The Kernodle Center for Civic Life inspires, educates, and prepares students and campus to partner with diverse communities to address local and global challenges, and gain a deeper understanding of their responsibility to actively contribute to civic life. The center serves as the convener of community-based engaged and experiential student learning opportunities in collaboration with faculty, staff, and community partners to address the common good.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement

The Kernodle Center for Civic Life strives to be a model of inclusion across Elon’s campus. We believe that a genuine appreciation of diversity and an intentional desire for inclusion are essential to the fulfillment of our mission. We are deeply committed to advancing a community of engagement where students, faculty, staff, community members, and other stakeholders can interact with each other across differences in political beliefs, socioeconomic status, religious backgrounds, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability level, race, ethnicity, or nationality. We will create a safe space for all dialogues for an engaged community where stakeholders can interact.
