United Methodist MLP

Only a brief mention to founding affiliation.

The Hendrix College seal appeared for the first time on the cover of the 1898 catalog. The seal included the College's motto, selected by a committee headed by the Rev. George W. Hill and taken from a passage in Ephesians: "Till we all come in the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ …" (Ephesians 4:13, King James Version). Currently translated as "unto the whole person," the motto, in Ancient Greek, reflects Hendrix's dedication to both Christian principles and the traditional liberal arts ideal.

Hendrix College's commitment to the cultivation of the whole person is nurtured by its relationship with the United Methodist Church. Founded by the church in 1876, the College took guidance from the Methodist value of uniting academic rigor and faith practices, a central tenet undergirding the opportunities for religious inquiry, vocational discernment, and social outreach that distinguish the institution. Throughout its history the College has valued those who hold diverse philosophical and religious perspectives. In religious and vocation programs combined with service learning, Hendrix continues to develop clergy and lay leaders for faithful service inside the church and beyond. The church relationship is supported by lay and clergy members on the Board of Trustees, the alumni community, and the larger church who encourage the value of higher education in helping students find meaningful vocations connected to who they are and how they want to serve in the world.
