Community building provides focus for new fellows

By beverly clark

The University announces its seventh class of undergraduates for the competitive Emory Community Building and Social Change Fellowship. A successful centerpiece of Emory’s Office of University-Community Partnerships, the fellowship is a national model for engaged learning programs.

The fellowship provides undergraduates with a comprehensive year of training, research and experience culminating in an intensive summer-long practicum working on community initiatives in metro Atlanta. The program also helps Emory continue to foster long-term, dedicated initiatives with various Atlanta neighborhoods and community groups.

Results of past fellows’ work include the completion of 25 projects that have produced policy change, new programs and entities, and funding for projects. Fellows also have expanded the capacity of existing community initiatives to effectively address issues such as HIV/AIDS, affordable housing, education, urban sprawl, citizen engagement and more.
