We are the Periclean Scholars class of 2013 at Elon University, a group of globally-engaged students working to create a lasting relationship between our university and our region of focus: Chiapas, Mexico. Through our partnerships, both local and abroad, we strive to address the issues of education and healthcare in Chiapas and in our own community of Alamance County.

Mission Statement

We, the Periclean Scholars of 2013, strive to facilitate the sharing of knowledge, resources, and service within Chiapas, Mexico, and with the greater international community. Our group endeavors to address global issues at the grassroots level by learning about the people and cultures of Mexico; cultivating awareness and acceptance of diversity among all cultures; and bringing attention and response to the social, political, and economic injustices and hardships facing citizens in Chiapas and our local communities. In partnership with Elon University, Alamance County, North Carolina, and Chiapas, Mexico, we aspire to help develop and implement sustainable projects and initiatives that will benefit all involved.
