About McPherson College

Founded in 1887, McPherson College’s programs integrate career guidance and practical
experiences into a traditional liberal arts curriculum that upholds the highest standards of academic excellence. Their goal is to help students discern a vocational call consistent with their gifts and interests and to prepare them for a life of meaningful work. Because they believe that the pursuit of truth is a collective endeavor, and that the point of scholarly learning is to advance the common good, McPherson aspires to be a healthy community of learning where whole persons nurture and balance their physical, intellectual, and spiritual components; develop and live in respectful, reciprocal relationships with others; and are committed to responsible service to the world.
