Elon University Awareness Programs

This blog is meant to serve as a resource for those interested in advocating for social justice. It is for people of all beliefs and all perspectives, and it is enhanced through people’s willingness to engage in discussions and think through the difficult world of social change. Currently, there are three awareness programs through Elon Volunteers! in the Kernodle Center.

Meet the Awareness Team: Spring 2014

Elon Volunteers (EV!)

Elon’s “umbrella organization for service” provides opportunities for Elon students to engage in service through regular programs, events, and service trips. EV! is student-run and student-led, with more than 100 leaders coordinating each of EV!’s opportunities.

The Kernodle Center

The Kernodle Center for Service Learning and Community Engagement, in partnership with local and international communities, advances student learning, leadership, and citizenship. It engages students, faculty, staff and community partners in service that benefits the university and its surrounding community.
