Week of Service


Exploring Poverty

In 2013, the Honors College adopted a theme of poverty as a means to raise awareness on the current issues surrounding poverty across the state of Alabama to our students.

In keeping with Auburn's land-grant mission and with Auburn's historic commitment to service, the Honors College developed the k(no)w poverty? Week of Service program. This program was created as a way to give students first-hand experience to the wide array of poverty.

Developed as a service and service learning series to incoming freshmen, the program both is both challenging and enlightening. Participating students have stated the week is an "eye-opening experience" and the "perfect way to start their career at Auburn University."

We invite you to explore current and past k(no)w poverty? Week of Service events:
