A familiar face has returned to help lead the Appalachian Center for Civic Life at Emory & Henry College.
Travis Proffitt, a member of the E&H Class 2004, is now serving as the new associate director for the Appalachian Center for Civic Life (ACCL).
Proffitt is working with Tal Stanley and the rest of the ACCL team on program prioritization and the development and coordination of local partnerships for both curricular and co-curricular programming.
In addition, he is leading the implementation of a developmental model for student learning and leadership focused on place-based education across all ACCL programs.
Proffitt also teaches classes in the interdisciplinary program in Civic Arts and Community Development as well as in the College’s CORE curriculum program.
I am excited to return to my alma mater, develop community, and be a part of creating a rich, engaging, and civically-minded educational environment for our students. Travis Proffitt
Before returning to Emory, Proffitt was involved in the field of volunteer and program management, experiential learning, and social justice education for nearly 10 years.
He earned his master’s degree in social justice from Loyola University Chicago, and double majored at Emory & Henry in public policy & community service and religion.
