The Carson-Newman Center for Community Engagement empowers students to become active members of their communities, mindful servant-leaders, and dedicated agents of social change. The Center for Community Engagement's vision is for a campus, county, and region where we are all well-equipped to have critical conversations and serve our community alongside one another. Throughout their generosity, the Carson-Newman Center for Community Engagement offers scholarships to incoming students.
Carson-Newman University is part of a national network of over 75 colleges and universities affiliated with the Corella & Bertram F.
