Mercer Commons Fellows meet three times per semester to explore common readings on faith, learning, and vocation and to seek advice from each other on their individual projects. The Council of Fellows constitutes a kind of think-tank for issues of faith, learning, and vocation on the Mercer campus. They plan and organize symposia, reading groups, seminars, and individual projects that keep those issues in the forefront of intellectual exchange university-wide. They also provide one of the best opportunities for cross-pollination amongst the various colleges and schools at Mercer.
