Our commitment to transformative learning is founded on three core principles: an intellectually challenging and rigorous academic experience built on a strong foundation in the liberal arts; learning experiences that are both immersive and that extend beyond the classroom; and preparation for life after Monmouth. To enhance the breadth and impact of our commitment, we offer a high level of personalization for each student, infusing the Monmouth Experience throughout every aspect of campus life.

Our signature programming extends from undergraduate studies to graduate programs and preparatory experiences for career advancement outside of the classroom. We ensure that career support for our students, from undergraduate research opportunities to graduate faculty mentorship, is embedded in the curriculum and tailored to fit individual objectives. Our alumni have the preparation, relationships and insight needed to thrive throughout their lives.

Together, these principles are the critical components of a Monmouth education. This is what shapes our identity and distinguishes the university from any other. Most of all, these are the indispensable ingredients for how we prepare young men and women for the lives ahead of them.
