Our Purpose and Commitment Can Intertwine
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
How? Because you want to be active, engaged and world-changing. Often, a donor talks of wanting his or her gift to make an impact. Your gift will instantly impact multiple lives and real people. We are a College of first-generation college students that fights to remain accessible and affordable so that all may benefit from a personal liberal arts education. Much as we tell freshmen and transfers that we expect them to step right into leadership roles here, because of our size, we ask you to take the bold step of assisting us in our world-changing vision and mission. Indeed, because we are small the impact of your gift is immediate and transformational for the people of Eureka College. Eureka is all about the people and that will never change because, much as teachers and students need top-notch facilities, the ivy of EC is indeed constituted by its family members, its people…….the EC family. You join this chain of ivy when you choose to support The Ivy Project.
Besides Bricks and Mortar You Will Be Building Leaders
Deep Roots of Servant Leadership
Since 1855, Eureka College has been an institution rooted in service. The values and commitment that come with being founded by abolitionists and equal rights advocates has created a culture that balances learning, leadership, and character. Eureka College continues to fulfill its mission of delivering a quality education that enables its graduates to be true leaders in their professions and communities. Service is a responsibility around here. The learning experience at Eureka extends throughout the world. It's the liberal arts in practice. We give our students daily opportunities to apply their intellect by analyzing, comparing, evaluating and reasoning through abstract concepts. We also encourage communication, which is accented by our small student/faculty ratio; the large majority of those faculty members hold a Ph.D. or other advanced degree and become mentors to students. More important, they travel the world learning and serving too!
