Service While Learning

Service is fully integrated into the Warren Wilson experience.  The community engagement commitment, designed by students, faculty, staff, and community partners, provides students with opportunities to explore how to make a difference in the world and apply what they’re learning in the classroom and workplace.

Design Your Own Service Path

There are many ways to engage in the community: students choose experiences that match their own interests, talents, and schedules as they fulfill our Community Engagement Commitment.  The Service Program provides many kinds of opportunities with over 50 community partner agencies working on a variety of social and environmental issues.  They also support service on-your-own at home, during study abroad or in other communities during break trips.
