Community Engagement

Emmanuel College and the NCAA DII firmly believe that serving our community with service projects is valuable to the growth of our student athletes; additionally, we also believe that through community engagement activities, we can further build long lasting relationships with our community by:

  • Fellowshipping and interacting at social gatherings.
  • Creating an atmosphere of friendly interaction.
  • Inviting the community on campus to allow them to learn more about our mission.
  • Creating a fun atmosphere to be remembered by all.

Throughout the year, Emmanuel College student athletes, led by our SAAC, will find ways to invite all students, faculty, staff, administration, along with our local community to a number of community engagement events.
