Our Mission

Community Engagement at Warren Wilson College is committed to fostering meaningful, ethical, and participatory collaboration between students and community partners. Through mutually beneficial relationships, students will enhance their critical consciousness and vocational discernment while community partners will gain labor and resources to further their missions. This exchange is guided by our commitment to inclusive excellence and will remain rooted in the following values:

  • Reciprocity: Our programming is guided by mutual benefit, and is asset-based and participatory in nature.
  • Accessibility: We strive to give all students, partners, and beneficiaries equitable access to opportunities and services.
  • Critical Consciousness: All community engagement experiences will be framed with preparation and reflection that utilizes social justice pedagogy to support enhanced critical awareness of self and community.
