Participate, learn, and grow
Emory & Henry students are not just engaged in the realm of academia; they are engaged with the world. The Appalachian Center for Community Service establishes partnerships between local rural community organizations and the campus community. The Center coordinates and administers many volunteer opportunities such as the Big Brothers and Big Sisters program, the Make a Wish Foundation, and the Migrant Health Network clinic. Students are encouraged to extend their service learning beyond typical volunteerism and to further examine the root causes of social inequities.
Some biology students collect microbes 150 feet underwater. Some physics students photograph binary stars. Some political science students present their work to major professional conferences. Across the curriculum, E&H professors prepare students by encouraging research and providing them with research opportunities that most college students do not receive until graduate school.
The Study Abroad program at Emory & Henry encourages students to expand their horizons by studying internationally. While students can choose to study throughout the world, Emory & Henry hosts international study centers in China, the Middle East and Europe.
Each year, Emory & Henry features close to 100 concerts, lectures, arts performances, films, exhibits, and poetry readings. In addition, the college hosts a literary festival and, in January, students present the Winter Forum, a campus-wide, social-issue conference that features an internationally renowned speaker.
Emory & Henry professors are nationally renowned for excellence in teaching. During the past 24 years, 12 E&H professors have received the highest teaching honors in the state of Virginia, and one was named U.S. Professor of the Year.
