As a collegiate community, Hendrix is dedicated to the cultivation of whole persons through the transmission of knowledge, the refinement of intellect, the development of character, and the encouragement of a concern for worthy values. In these ways Hendrix prepares its graduates for lives of service and fulfillment in their communities and the world.
Hendrix is a College that engages students in the active pursuit of knowledge. Our students work closely with their faculty mentors, shaping their learning experiences to reflect their personal interests and challenging themselves to stretch beyond what they thought possible.
This commitment to engaged learning is part of the history and fabric of Hendrix College. It is now the cornerstone of a curricular initiative called Your Hendrix Odyssey: Engaging in Active Learning. Through the Odyssey program we guarantee that every Hendrix student will have at least three specific active learning experiences, drawn from six categories. In addition to the personal benefit students receive by linking critical thought with action, Hendrix will also provide an experiential learning transcript to each graduate. We believe this new credential will be a valuable addition to our graduates' portfolios, whether their next move in life is to continue their education in graduate school or to enter the workforce.
