Community Engagement Commitment
The mission of Warren Wilson College includes preparing students for service, leadership, and meaningful lifelong work and learning. As part of this Triad educational program, completion of a Community Engagement Commitment is one of the requirements for graduation. Students meet the Commitment by progressing through four different Points of Engagement and Growth (PEGs):

Self Knowledge
Understanding Complex Issues

Commitment to Community Engagement
By graduation, students demonstrate a measurable level of learning in all four Points of Engagement and Growth.
