Catalysts for change

Emory University is an integral part of our local and global community, and so are the students, staff, faculty, alumni, and community partners who bring our programs to life.

Emory's Center for Civic and Community Engagement (CCE) supports members of the Emory community to develop and apply their skills to foster a kinder and more socially just world. We offer established programs that are vital to the communities around us--programs that help members of the Emory community channel their passion for social justice, education, health care, and more into purposeful impact in the metro Atlanta community and beyond. The work of the CCE helps operationalize and fulfill the University's mission to create, preserve, teach, and apply knowledge in the service of humanity. As participants learn and grow, they find they can be catalysts for change and can better serve their community.

Programs that make a difference

We support and prepare students to further develop into global citizens that are socially responsible, critically aware, and meaningfully engaged through our breadth of service opportunities. Roughly 83% of Emory’s student body is involved in service across the community—service has been part of the DNA of the university since its inception. Alumni and faculty are an integral part of the effort. The following programs offer impactful engagement opportunities for students, faculty, and alumni. Together, we are making a difference. Everyday.

This is everyday impact

Building community never quits. It’s daily, year-round, nonstop effort. Here’s where we’re focused right now.
