Walking the Talk
At Warren Wilson, we share your fierce obligation to serve your community. So we walk the talk. Community engagement isn’t optional at Warren Wilson. It’s required.
Here, all students participate in community engagement as a graduation requirement. As you interact with our Community Engagement Commitment, you will think deeply about issues that you are passionate about and collaborate with others to take action.
And as a member of the Warren Wilson community, you will be surrounded by faculty, staff and peers who are dedicated to deconstructing our most pressing social and environmental justice issues and exploring creative solutions right alongside you.
Explore Our Issue Areas
At Warren Wilson College, our engagement in the community is focused on addressing social and environmental justice issues. We find that the issues that we care about in the world are often connected and there are many points of intersection. Students engage with a wide variety of issues, but we commit the most time and develop the deepest partnerships in our designated Issue Areas.
