Servant Leadership

Welcome to TWU!

Service is one of the many ways our bulldog family continues to grow outside of the classroom. Through community engagement, we believe that service creates an opportunity for servant leaders to emerge.

We’ve built this idea into your Wesleyan¬†experience and provide numerous volunteer opportunities throughout the year. Each fall, the Bulldog family joins together for the annual Day of Service. Students, faculty and staff head out to the greater-Athens community to volunteer at non-profits in need of services.

Love Thy Neighbor Project

student volunteering with love thy neighborThe Love Thy Neighbor Project is dedicated to eliminating the barrier of food insecurity for individuals at Tennessee Wesleyan University, as well as throughout the surrounding Athens and McMinn County community. In the fall of 2013, the Love Thy Neighbor Project was developed by the Center for Service and Leadership staff and an AmeriCorps VISTA member to address issues of food insecurity in McMinn County. The Love Thy Neighbor Project seeks to provide low-income individuals with healthy, fresh foods on a regular basis to alleviate the burden of food insecurity and encourage a healthy diet. In the last year, the TWU Campus Food Pantry served more than 2,500 clients, the Mobile Food Pantry provided food to 1,426 local households, and the Back Sacks program supplied 70 school-aged children with weekend meals for 38 weeks.

TWU prepares students with the transformative experience and to be well-rounded leaders who make a positive impact on the world.
