Olivet College is a private, liberal arts college with very strong professional programs and faculty who view themselves as both scholars and facilitators of learning. We’re known for our values-based mission encapsulated by the motto, Education for Individual and Social Responsibility, where responsibility is woven across the entire curriculum and 100 percent of our students participate in service learning. We’re a place where students come to develop the knowledge and skills to become professionally and economically successful, but to also learn that with success comes responsibility to make a positive difference in the world. This has enabled us to develop graduates who are highly sought after by employers and graduate schools; our placement rates with both are high.
