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. The church
relationship is supported by lay and clergy members on the Board of Trustees,
the alumni community, and the larger church.
religious and vocation programs combined with service learning,
Hendrix continues to develop clergy and lay leaders for faithful
service in the church and beyond, and
supports students of all religious, spiritual, and philosophical commitments as
they seek meaningful vocations connected to who they are and how they want to
serve in the world.
