Sewanee is a community of civic-minded scholars.
The Community Engagement Fellows program gives students an opportunity to develop a ministry that seeks to more fully integrate community service, social justice, advocacy and faith, in order to deepen the engagement of the School with the broader community. Fellows in this program extend the reach of the School that includes working with local agencies to help raise awareness of hunger, collecting food and supplies, training individuals in life skills who are victims of domestic violence, and mentoring prison inmates. All of the initiatives are led by the fellows with the goal of establishing a network of community volunteer opportunities for seminary students, faculty, and staff. Fellows may choose to work in a program that has already been established by a previous seminarian, or work to start a new initiative of their own.
