Elmira College offers its students, in a supportive and collaborative environment, both liberal and professional education of sufficient breadth and depth to enable them to become more responsible and productive in society.
Steeped in tradition, Elmira College is a private, residential, co-educational liberal arts college that emphasizes both general and professional education. The College blends academic rigor, distinctive programs, theory and practice beyond the classroom to graduate responsible global citizens and leaders prepared for a lifetime of careers and personal growth.
Academic programs are built upon strong general education in the liberal arts and sciences, with special attention given to the development of communication skills and the exploration of world cultures. Students also participate in field experiences or projects related to career goals, and the College provides a wide range of other off-campus learning options, including a community service requirement.
