Empower is a student-led marketing and communications agency that allows students to expand their global marketing and communications skills as they complete projects for clients in the United Kingdom. Students are empowered to challenge themselves and reach their full potential as they empower businesses to grow.

Empower focuses on working with local non-profit organizations, as well as Harlaxton College, Harlaxton Manor, and the Walled Garden initiative. Students selected to be part of Empower will take on projects for clients within teams.

In this unique experiential learning opportunity, students can expect to gain skills in a variety of marketing, communication, and media-related fields while delving into British culture and international business. Empower builds inter-cultural competency and provides students with unparalleled practical experience as they move forward in their careers.

This course is the British adaptation of the successful Embrace agency at the University of Evansville where students acquire clients, develop marketing strategy, and execute creative projects.

Empower is a ChangeLab project and is offered as a three credit hour course. Students from partner universities can inquire about transfer credit with their respective marketing, communications, or public relations departments.

Students will attend 2 to 3 hours per week of team meetings and are asked to set aside 5 hours of independent, unscheduled time dedicated to Empower.

You can apply for Empower at the time you submit your regular Harlaxton application. For additional information contact
