    About Cornell College

    Cornell is an independent, coeducational, residential liberal arts college, established in 1853, nurtured by the United Methodist Church, and dedicated to fostering intellectual, moral, and personal growth. The college is committed to sustaining a community devoted to liberal learning and democratic values. To this end, it seeks to provide a caring environment for living and learning, characterized by close relationships, physical and emotional well-being, appreciation of diversity, affirmation of equal opportunity and academic freedom, and respect for the dignity and worth of each individual. Cornell College endeavors to provide opportunities for pursuing liberal education that allow Cornell students to: * explore widely the range of human experience and investigate carefully the work of a chosen discipline; * analyze problems and synthesize solutions; * integrate theory and practice; and * read critically, reason effectively, engage creatively, feel deeply, evaluate fairly, respond imaginatively, communicate clearly, and act responsibly. Cornell College endorses liberal education as an end in itself and as a means of empowering students for leadership through productive careers and humane service in the global community. --ratified by the Cornell College Faculty on March 6, 1990, and adopted by the Board of Trustees on May 18, 1990 The college has established a set of specific learning objectives based on this mission statement.
