Engaged Scholarship and Learning at Emory
When students first arrive at Emory, they typically feel excited about the intellectual journey ahead but sometimes also feel a little anxious. They may be unsure about what to study, what careers to pursue, or even how to make sense of the world around them. Students may wonder how their classroom learning and scholarly studies relate to the real world or how their college education will prepare them for fulfilling lives once they graduate.
At Emory College, students can choose from a variety of classes, fellowships, internships, and service and research programs that place them in real-world settings, where they learn marketable skills while making valuable contributions to improving local, national, and even international communities. As engaged scholars students can explore career options, connect with diverse populations, and grow intellectually and emotionally.
Center for Community Partnerships (CFCP)
Created by the Office of the Provost in 2000, the Center for Community Partnerships (http://oucp.emory.edu/) is Emory's centralized resource for integrating teaching, research, and service to benefit the Atlanta community.
