Gué Pardue Hudson Center for Student Engagement

The Gué Pardue Hudson Center for Student Engagement creates and sustains a vibrant campus experience for students where learning takes place within and outside of the classroom. The Center encourages Agnes Scott students to become actively involved in organizations, programs and services that foster intellectual growth and leadership development. The Center motivates students to connect with Agnes Scott and the wider global community through the integration of diversity, leadership, service and wellness in its mission. 

The Center for Student Engagement staff support students as they explore who they are across the spectrum of diversity. We recognize that a multiplicity of identities is represented within our community and we affirm the existence of these varied perspectives through the work of the Center staff. The Center serves as a key resource for Agnes Scott’s commitment to create and foster an inclusive campus community. You will participate in a variety of community-building programs including intergroup dialogues, cultural celebrations and social justice initiatives that serve to educate and support you as you experience life in college. As you develop your cultural competence, you will find that leadership opportunities abound at Agnes Scott. 

The Center for Student Engagement offers specialized leadership programming that develops students from their first-year to graduation. The Center encourages you to join Emerging Leaders, become a club president or get involved with the numerous other opportunities that will empower you as a leader. Whether you are selected as a Dana Scholar, become a member of Honor Court, or choose to start your own chess club, it is important that you recognize the importance of finding your voice as you pursue ways to lead and serve with integrity. 

The Center for Student Engagement believes that community engagement through service learning opportunities plays an essential role in the development of students as global citizens. Through a variety of on and off campus activities focused on student engagement in service, the Center staff invite you to participate in initiatives that allow you to commit yourself to the values of lifelong learning and community involvement. As you move throughout the world seeking ways to make a difference in the lives of others, the Center for Student Engagement will be with you on your journey. We look forward to having you become an engaged member of the Agnes Scott community.
