Ongoing Civic Engagement Projects 

Civic Leader Scholars 

Civic Leader Scholar Retreat Spring 2022 Civic Leader Scholars is a student organization that anyone is welcome to join. Civic Leader Scholars work to raise awareness about social issues on campus by planning and carrying out lyceum events and civic engagement projects, all while designing reflection activities that give participants the opportunity to connect what their learning and doing with long-term solutions to social problems.

Intentional Break Program 

The Intentional Break Program at Emory & Henry College gives students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to travel regionally and nationally over fall and spring break to:

  • engage in community-identified service
  • immerse themselves into another culture
  • live simply and grow in relationships
  • learn about and consider solutions to broader social issues

We are always planning the next Intentional Break Experience. Reach out to Leah Wilson if you are interested in joining the planning team.
