Building stronger communities, one partnership at a time - Emory is undoubtably a big community with lots of resources.

Service within coursework

Our faculty are instruments of change -- and service is one option for inspiring action. By adding service opportunities to coursework, faculty help students apply learnings to real-world situations. As part of the curriculum, students may be able to conduct research in the community, gather and analyze data, identify specific problems, and generate solutions. Offering extra credit in exchange for community service hours is another way that faculty can connect their coursework directly to needs within the community.
