Hendrix College is a residential liberal arts institution, situated in Conway, Arkansas. Related to The United Methodist Church, Hendrix is nonsectarian in its admission and educational program and provides a vision that is national and international in scope. The College provides educational opportunities consistent both with its traditions and with the demands of cultural relevance in a time of rapid change. Students are challenged to acquire the knowledge and abilities requisite for entry either into further professional studies or into professions directly.
Hendrix is committed to the idea that the educational program of each student should combine areas of common learning with individual design. The curriculum is arranged to assure students the opportunities to gain acquaintance with cultural traditions of the world; to develop undergraduate expertise in a field of concentration; to cultivate skills of communication, deliberation, and analysis; and to study broadly in a variety of areas of knowledge. Additionally, traditional coursework is deepened and enriched through a broad array of engaged learning opportunities organized under a program called Your Hendrix Odyssey: Engaging in Active Learning. Each student develops a course of study in consultation with a faculty adviser.
The Hendrix academic program is complemented by creative and performing opportunities, by varsity and intramural athletics, and by a comprehensive co-curricular program including residential life, activities both on-campus and off-campus, career development, and opportunities for personal guidance and religious expression. In both its academic and its co-curricular programs, Hendrix strives to provide students the means to pursue meaningful, enriching, and contribute personal and professional lives.
