The Carnegie Foundation has selected the University of the South for its 2020 Community Engagement Classification, a designation that indicates institutional commitment to community engagement. Sewanee is one of only 18 U.S. liberal arts colleges focusing on the arts and sciences to receive this designation in 2020.
The Sewanee chapter of NAACP in collaboration with the 213-A Leaders Program will host a screening of "Just Mercy," a recent film adaptation of Bryan Stevenson’s memoir "Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption." The following day, a panel will be in conversation about the themes explored in the movie and memoir. "Just Mercy" has been the University’s common book for the last two years.
