A liberal arts education teaches students to look at the world as a whole, to begin making connections between things like interpersonal conflict and international relations, between education and poverty, between thinking about themselves to thinking about the "me in context.
As members of the Wilkes family, the Army of Colonels, we encourage students to participate in community service and Service-Learning side-by-side with community members to create lasting change.
Every year, Wilkes students contribute more than 50,000 hours of service in local agencies and programs.
Giving of your time and energy is a great way to gain perspective and learn something about life.
