About our educational community: Antioch College was founded as a new kind of American college, a place where students seek to “win victories for humanity” and engage in real-world problem solving in the classroom, campus and community, and through our renowned cooperative education program. Antioch attracts tenacious questioners who find virtue in our being rigorous and open, creative and deliberative, diverse and self-reliant; who appreciate the thoughtful scale of individual, small group and community learning, and our commitment to principles of applied and experiential education. Antioch is a laboratory for discovering the new and better ways of living and learning that are the building blocks for democratic communities and a healthy planet. Through participatory learning and work-based education, students develop and put their ideas into practice. Guided by talented teachers and mentors, students own their education through a robust Self-Designed Major program that encourages students to explore the transdisciplinary spaces within and between the humanities, sciences, arts, and social sciences. Students also utilize Antioch’s dynamic resources like the Antioch farm and Coretta Scott King Center in their studies. The high level of participation in the design and governance of the College, dialogue and collaboration across the campus to develop community here and in the surrounding region is unmatched elsewhere.
