Hendrix College cultivates graduates who are ready to engage with the world beyond our campus. Embracing eight Career Competencies, our entire community works together to inspire graduates to "Be Hendrix. Beyond Hendrix."
Hendrix cultivates empathy, creativity, self-understanding, rigorous inquiry, informed deliberation, and active learning across the liberal arts, toward the development of the whole person. Through engagement that links the classroom with the world, and a commitment to diversity, inclusion, justice, and
sustainable living, the Hendrix community inspires students to lead lives of accomplishment, integrity, service, and joy. (The Statement of Purpose)
Our students develop a breadth of knowledge across the liberal arts and sciences that gives them the potential to explore the present and flexibly meet the demands of their futures. Through this breadth of study, we, the college community, encourage students to enhance
their understanding by making connections among different bodies of knowledge. Our students also engage more deeply in at least one area of study, establishing facility in their chosen discipline. (Vision for Student Learning)
With the guidance of the college community and the curriculum requirements, our students benefit from the breadth and depth of a liberal arts and sciences education.
