Readers will delve into stories of the College's alumni and students bridging cultural divides in the Middle East, exploring some emotional disagreements within the United Methodist faith tradition, and investigating veteran care.

"Each Encircle issue shares stories about Centenary leaders who are putting their liberal arts education to work in the wider world, usually for the benefit of others," said Kate Pedrotty, Director of Strategic Communication. "The goal is not only to report these stories, but also to engage readers with new ideas and perspectives."

Encircle is organized around three global challenges, which were developed and approved by the Centenary faculty as an inquiry and action framework for students. Its articles touch on issues from a variety of perspectives: campus, local, national, and international. The title, Encircle, encapsulates President David Rowe's narrative of Centenary's special responsibility to encircle the world with wise, caring, moral leaders developed to engage the challenges of the 21st century.

Extra copies are available by sending an email to encircle@centenary.edu. Encircle will also be available in interactive and PDF formats online.
