Periclean Scholars

Director: Professor Gendle

The Periclean Scholars program is part of Project Pericles, a national multi-institution initiative dedicated to increasing civic engagement and social responsibility. Periclean Scholars promote awareness of global issues and provide culturally sensitive and sustainable approaches to these issues. Students apply to become Periclean Scholars during their first year at Elon. Each Class of Scholars researches a country of focus and chooses an issue to address during their sophomore year. Scholars spend their junior and senior years engaged in activities that integrate academic reading, research and writing, and service and outcome-oriented experiential learning activities. All Periclean Scholars classes operate as seminars, with emphasis on student ownership and leadership. Students from all majors are encouraged to apply. These classes are only open to students accepted into the Periclean Scholars program.
