Since it was established by the Associate Reformed Presbyterian (ARP) Church in 1839, Erskine College has been committed to the principle that facts and values–learning and faith–are inseparable. With this foundation, Erskine is committed to developing the whole person as a lifelong learner. Erskine is recognized for encouraging students to think critically about their academic studies, with minds and hearts open to the truth.

Within this framework, faculty and students are free to engage in a genuine pursuit of truth and understanding and to strive to develop the highest and best use of their abilities.

With an Erskine education, graduates are equipped to flourish in all of life.
