The 1804 Society
What is the 1804 Society?
The 1804 Society is a leadership organization named in honor of the founding year of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. The organization encourages students to promote service to others and provides distinguished ambassadors of Emmanuel College to the campus and the wider community. This group of individuals continues the Emmanuel tradition through an understanding of the mission of the College.
Through this organization, 1804 provides an opportunity for students to strengthen their leadership skills, fine-tune communication styles, and advocate service to others and to self all while promoting the charism of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur.
By participating in this organization individuals will be educated about the founding of the College, engaged through interaction with Sisters of Notre Dame both on campus and through their missions locally, nationally and globally, as well as provide basic leadership skills so that our students can live out the values of the Sisters of Notre Dame and be successful upon graduation from Emmanuel.
Role of 1804 in the Emmanuel Community
Members of the 1804 society act as peer educators to continue the tradition of mission at Emmanuel College. Through various events and programs, members of 1804 will assist to infuse the mission of the college into campus life.
The campus, including student organizations, academic departments and university administrators, have the opportunity to utilize 1804 to represent the Emmanuel community at their various events and activities. If you are interested in having the 1804 society assist with your upcoming event, please email Mark Harrington, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
