Catalog 2020-2021

Statement on Church Relatedness

Approved by the Hendrix College faculty and by the Hendrix Board of Trustees in spring 2017.

Hendrix College's commitment to the cultivation of the whole person is nurtured by its relationship with the United Methodist Church. Founded by the church in 1876, the College took guidance from the Methodist value of uniting academic rigor and faith practices, a central tenet undergirding the opportunities for religious inquiry, vocational discernment, and social outreach that distinguish the institution. Throughout its history the College has valued those who hold diverse philosophical and religious perspectives. In religious and vocation programs combined with service learning, Hendrix continues to develop clergy and lay leaders for faithful service inside the church and beyond. The church relationship is supported by lay and clergy members on the Board of Trustees, the alumni community, and the larger church who encourage the value of higher education in helping students find meaningful vocations connected to who they are and how they want to serve in the world.
