Inspired by the motto “Increase in Excellence,” the first faculty challenged students to grow and develop intellectually, spiritually and physically.

Today, our mission continues to focus on students as they follow a path of intellectual and spiritual growth on their way to successful futures. That mission, in turn, is extended to others through a broad program of active engagement and community service.

You will discover that Emory & Henry is a place of promise made up of warm-hearted, caring people who care about your fulfillment. This is a community that embraces people from all walks of life as they work together to improve the individual and the world. We are people with a mission and a long history devoted to transforming lives and increasing excellence.

Emory & Henry views diversity, equity, and inclusion as foundational to our institution, and strives to continually “increase in excellence” in this endeavor. In doing so, we recognize the forced removal and stolen labor at the heart of the very founding (and naming) of our College. We also acknowledge the negative impact of power imbalances, discrimination, and exclusion on generations of marginalized groups dating back to the inception of Emory & Henry College. We also recognize that, while this statement is important, it is an insufficient approach to the liberation of impacted peoples.
