Ferrum College is a liberal arts institution founded on Christian principles and related to the
United Methodist Church. It is our mission to educate students in the disciplines
of higher learning and to help them be thoughtful and perceptive, to be articulate
and professionally capable, and to be caring and concerned citizens of their community,
nation, and world. We therefore commit ourselves to developing the whole student,
both in openness to a wide range of intellectual discovery, and in the physical, spiritual,
and social aspects of life.
Our campus environment supports service to others and the development of a personal
code of values. Toward these ends, we expect all members of the campus community to
treat each other with compassion, to respect each other's diverse qualities and backgrounds,
and to support each other in the common pursuit of insight and discovery. In all these
endeavors, we encourage students, faculty, and staff to appreciate excellence and
to dedicate themselves to achieving it.
