Student Affairs

"At McKendree University, we believe that every student has a limitless potential for growth, and our student services are designed to provide all students with the special support they need to achieve their goals. McKendree stresses the importance of intellectual development which is promoted through instruction and study in carefully integrated curricula. However, at McKendree learning isn't limited to the classroom. In providing a variety of services and programs, the University strives to create a community where intellectual, social, personal, spiritual, and ethical growth is encouraged and supported. The University community is organized to identify and to respond to student needs while simultaneously creating opportunities for students to join in a community of citizen-scholars. In such a setting, the most important ingredient is the individual, an individual who is committed to challenging him/herself and who demonstrates respect for others."
