About Erskine College
The mission of Erskine College is to equip students to flourish by providing an excellent liberal arts education in a Christ-centered environment where learning and biblical truth are integrated to develop the whole person. Therefore, Erskine seeks candidates for faculty positions who are professing Christians and who are committed to excellence in teaching and service. They should support the goals of a strong liberal arts education and be willing to explore with students the integration of faith and learning.
Erskine’s tradition of excellence in liberal arts higher education goes back nearly 175 years to its founding in 1839 by the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church, making it one of the oldest, most respected church-affiliated colleges in the Southeast.
Our alumni lead businesses and organizations both large and small throughout the world. More than half of Erskine’s graduates go on to some type of graduate education. In fact in the past several years nearly 100% of all graduates applying to medical graduate programs were accepted, and several proceeded directly into top tier Ph.D. programs. However, our mission moves us beyond simply producing competent professionals.... We seek to equip the whole person — intellectually, physically and spiritually — to flourish in life and leadership.
To do this, we see Erskine as both an excellent liberal arts college and a close-knit community. This combination provides excellent opportunities for students and faculty to take learning beyond the classroom. Quality is revealed, weaknesses are strengthened, and character is refined through intentional, individual relationships. Erskine is proud of the fact that faculty serve as mentors and often become lifelong friends with students.
