The Faith & Work Initiative has generated a number of campus programs that offer students the opportunity to experience a variety of professions and vocational opportunities through internships, fellowships, student groups, and special events.
- 1 Campus 1 Community is a community engagement program, directed by Dr. Jennifer Lewton-Yates. It is the embodiment of an institutional commitment to long-term, mutually beneficial partnerships between Millsaps College and our off-campus neighbors. In conversation with community partners from the Midtown neighborhood, K-12 public schools, and throughout Jackson, 1C1C seeks to share resources and respond to identified need, both inside and outside the Millsaps gates.
- Community Engaged Learning is a set of academic courses that are engaged in the community and led by faculty. This program is directed by Dr. Stephanie Rolph
- Wellspring is an international learning community, directed by Dr. Jennifer Lewton-Yates.
- Faith and Work is an academic minor, directed by Dr. Shelli Poe
These programs work together in mutually supportive ways. For example, 1C1C Fellows provide assistance in Wellspring. Wellspring includes community engagement opportunities. And the Faith and Work minor provides community engagement through internships and credit in the minor for Wellspring courses. Although these programs are distinct, they cohere with one another to create a well-functioning network of opportunities.
Please contact the appropriate directors of each program for further information.
