mission statement for Morningside College appears
the bottom of this page. This mission statement grew
from our belief that a college education should be
transforming experience that certainly prepares students
for careers, but that also prepares students for
life. The values that are exemplified in this
mission statement are based on our connection with
Methodist Church , but are also appropriate for and
welcoming to all individuals.
will notice that the mission statement has three
components. First, the Morningside College experience
cultivates a passion for life-long learning.
This is, perhaps, the most important
thing that we can do for students. Our world is changing at a very
rapid rate and it is important to be adaptable.
A passion for life-long learning enables adaptability.
Studies indicate that college graduates will
change careers, not just jobs, four to five times after
they graduate. Those who will be successful will
have the ability and the desire to continue to learn
second component describes a dedication
to ethical leadership. At
Morningside College we are educating tomorrow's leaders. We
want them to be effective leaders who behave in an ethical
fashion and we will provide experiences during their
college years that encourage ethical actions. Ethical
leaders also know how to be effective followers, thus
we will educate students who can be productive

believe that developing such a sense of responsibility
is critically important
for a college educated person. Morningside students
are involved in many community service projects and
service learning is an important component of our curriculum.

to their communities.
