EMU believes the best education combines rigorous academics with concern for the common good. Professors are mentors who know students by first name, chat over lunch or coffee, and nurture their life goals inside and outside the classroom.

Cross-cultural study, whether a semester of study abroad, three weeks in the summer, or an internship in Washington, D.C., prepares students to be critical thinkers with a global focus. The Center for Justice and Peacebuilding has earned world renown. Nursing students learn to care for the “whole” person. Student-athletes develop leadership and life skills they carry into adulthood.

EMU graduates display a unique combo of strong ethics, people skills, and flexibility, often with a focus on environmental and social sustainability.
