Emmanuel College Political Forum
EC Political Forum is dedicated to providing a space in which students can communicate and debate political issues in a thoughtful and organized setting. The club is dedicated to educating and providing opportunities to students regardless of major. We shall strive to remain non-partisan and emphasize civil discourse.

Emmanuel College Mock Trial Association
The mission of the EC Mock Trial team is to learn how to study/ research a court case and compete against other colleges as an "attorney" or "witness" in a mock trial. While doing this, students will also build public speaking skills and learn how to think on their feet.

Model United Nations
The Model UN seeks to promote global consciousness and political engagement in a competitive setting through the practical application of public speaking skills and diplomatic techniques.

Youth in Government 
The purpose of the ECYIG Chapter is to educate our generation about democracy and the political systems of America. Immersing students in government roles, we attend one conference in January and work on bills and parliamentary procedure throughout the year.

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 Center for Mission Engagement oversees this organization. For more information, please contact
