Engaged Learning Opportunities

Making connections between ideas about sustaining the places we live and work in and actually changing our behaviors is the heart of engaged learning. The Emory as Place Initiative, like other programs within the Office of Sustainability Initiatives, is committed to living out Emory's commitments to sustainability.

Emory's service learning activities begin with campus-based experiences, hikes and clean-ups, planting programs, and removing invasive species. Often, these are done in conjunction with the Friends of Emory Forest and Volunteer Emory. But our larger intellectual and moral goals draw the University to service learning partnerships beyond the campus gates, where the water and energy that leaves our place intersects with the real lives of other communities down-stream or down-grid. Those community partnerships remain a key aspect of our service learning commitment, to join with others to make Atlanta and the larger bio-region a more sustainable and thriving place.
