Randolph College is committed to excellence in the liberal arts and sciences. The College believes that today the breadth and depth of the liberal arts bear as directly as ever on the needs of its students, who in a changing society must be competent, flexible, and strong. Within the traditional framework of liberal studies, the College offers students a challenging, enlightened, supportive, and inspiring environment in which to gain knowledge, pursue personal growth, and prepare for their futures. The College not only fosters the intellectual growth of students, but by virtue of its small size supports the student’s growth in personal integrity and in ethical and social responsibility. Concern for the individual fosters the atmosphere of caring valued so highly by the Randolph community. This is a community where students, faculty, and administrators share a common purpose: the pursuit of excellence in educating leaders for the global society of the 21st century.
