About the Center

Citizenship and place.

What are our responsibilities as citizens of a place? What are our obligations as members of a community?

The Appalachian Center for Civic Life provides a variety of ways for Emory & Henry students to explore these questions. We believe that students already possess the skills, knowledge, and understanding to be active and engaged in the world and that they have the ability to serve as agents of social change even before becoming college graduates. We provide opportunities for students to be involved in a variety of civic engagement projects that connect with their academic journey while providing real, measurable outcomes for the community.
