The EASL Forum Program helps today's Oxford College students become tomorrow's ethical leaders by building strong connections among teaching, research, and service.
The EASL Forum promotes increased attention throughout Emory to ethics and leadership studies, theory-practice learning, community-based research, and volunteerism. The EASL Forum at Oxford animates, encourages, advances, and supports Oxford's citizen-scholars as they develop the power to serve and lead for the common good.
The program involves fifteen students in a yearlong, collaborative learning experience that includes a retreat; a weekly forum focused on service, community building, and leadership development; one two-hour EASL academic course per semester; and service activities.
Forum sessions focus on themes such as community building, leadership skill building, group dynamics, personal leadership styles, and contemporary ethical issues.
A retreat in the fall-typically to Winshape Wilderness Retreat Center in Berry, Georgia -helps kick off the program.
The EASL Forum is made possible by a grant from the Office of University-Community Partnerships at Emory. For more information on the EASL Forum, contact:
