Community Engagement Commitment

The mission of Warren Wilson College includes preparing students for service, leadership, and meaningful lifelong work and learning. As part of this Triad educational program, completion of a Community Engagement Commitment is one of the requirements for graduation. Students meet the Commitment by progressing through four different Points of Engagement and Growth (PEGs): Click on each PEG to learn more.

  1. Self Knowledge
  2. Understanding Complex Issues
  3. Capacity for Leadership
  4. Commitment to Community Engagement

By graduation, students demonstrate a measurable level of learning in all four Points of Engagement and Growth.

There are so many ways to fulfill your Community Engagement Commitment. Here are a few examples of how you can utilize these Points of Engagement and Growth to shape your service experiences. Click on a student's picture or name to see their Community Engagement Commitment Profile.
