Center for Engaged Learning Peer Ambassadors
I am a strong advocate for asset based community development, and engaged learning is the perfect component of being able to share experiences and create social change across campus.
Engaged learning is such a vital part of cultivating personal growth. You discover who you are, what you're capable of, and what you can bring to the table when you put yourself to the test.
I am fortunate to have been provided with an abundance of incredible opportunities that have contributed to my intellectual, professional, and academic development, all of which I accredit to The Furman Advantage.
