Overview

Overview

Antioch University-Midwest says

Antioch University Midwest, established in 1988, offers adults interested in furthering their education a range of graduate and undergraduate programs that are responsive to emerging societal needs. Each program emphasizes critical thinking, provides opportunities for collaborative learning, emphasizes cultural diversity and an international perspective, and promotes the integration of life and work experience with academic knowledge. Antioch College was founded in 1852 in Yellow Springs, Ohio, as a private, liberal arts college. Horace Mann, the architect of the American public school system, turned down the nomination for governor of his native Massachusetts and headed west by train, stagecoach, and boat to become the first president of Antioch College.

Mann believed in educating the whole individual, not just the mind. Though Antioch's curriculum was based on the Harvard model of its day, Mann pioneered the introduction of coeducation, nonsectarianism, and nonsegregation in order to educate "minds free from prejudice and yearning after truth."

While Antioch continues Mann's commitment to the education of the whole individual, Antioch's philosophy has also been greatly influenced by Arthur Morgan, who became president in 1920. Morgan's genius was to ask students not to wait for the end of their studies to move into the work world, but to travel back and forth, making that movement between work and study the focus of their learning. His introduction of this work-study program into a liberal arts college broke tradition, making Antioch in the 1920's different from all other liberal arts colleges.

Antioch is an institution proud of serving learners across their life spans. Antioch College has evolved into a multi-campus university of more than 4,000 students who study at the Antioch Yellow Springs campuses, and at campuses in Seattle, Washington; Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, California; and Keene, New Hampshire.
