Elmhurst College inspires its students to form themselves intellectually and personally and to prepare for meaningful and ethical work in a multicultural, global society. Working together with passion and commitment, we foster learning, broaden knowledge, and enrich culture through pedagogical innovation, scholarship, and creative expression. Vision for the Future Elmhurst College will become nationally recognized for the Elmhurst Experience: a contemporary framing of liberal learning that, first, empowers and asks our students to become self-directed, academically grounded, intellectually engaged, and socially responsible citizens, who understand and respect the diversity of the world’s cultures and peoples, and, second, prepares our students from their first day on campus to make wise academic and co-curricular choices leading to satisfying professional futures. The hallmarks of the Elmhurst Experience-student self-formation and early professional preparation-will prepare our students to become truly educated women and men, ready for life in a complex and competitive world.
