Urban Alliance. Engaging Today's Students, Empowering Tomorrow's Leaders
The Urban Alliance, an initiative of Johnson University, partners with like-minded organizations in urban Knoxville to engage and empower emerging community leaders through inspiring educational experiences. Uniting Johnson University’s strengths in higher education with the strengths of its community partners, the Urban Alliance offers programs in science, mentoring, theology, research, and leadership development.
Current programs include:
Royal Explorers, in partnership with Emerald Youth Foundation, a two-week field-based summer science camp for city 6th graders.
Future of Hope, in partnership with Lilly Foundation Youth Institute, a six-month practical and theological exploration of issues facing Knoxville, designed for urban high school students..
Urban Scholars, a scholarship program established to help promising urban high school students* attend Johnson University.
Urban Plunge, an inner city residential experience for Johnson University undergraduate and graduate students.
ExtendEd Knoxville (KIBI), in partnership with Knoxville Interdenominational Bible Institute, a degree-granting faith and leadership development program for adults.
