  • Hendrix has been named one of the nation’s up-and-coming liberal arts college by U.S. News and World Report – for five years in a row. Their methodology: College presidents, provosts, and admissions deans were asked to nominate up to 10 colleges in their U.S. News Best Colleges ranking category "that are making improvements in academics, faculty, students, campus life, diversity, and facilities. These schools are worth watching because they are making promising and innovative changes."

The course is taught by pairs of professors from different disciplines so that students can explore a topic such as "Politics and Public Institutions" or "Origins and Ethics" from different perspectives and question what it means to be involved in our communities, whether locally or globally.
