As a liberal arts institution, Alice Lloyd College is concerned with the education of the total person. The quality of student life plays an integral role in the intellectual, social, emotional, physical and spiritual growth of each individual student. From the initial contact by the College Admissions Office through graduation, we seek to provide an orderly series of activities and services which assists the student’s passage through the academic process. The various services and programs provided through the Student Services Office supports the educational process by fostering maturity, emphasizing responsibility, and developing self-confidence and self-worth.
From its inception, Alice Lloyd College has placed the highest value on educating the whole person. The name of the community, Pippa Passes, originated from an epic poem by Robert Browning called Pippa Passes. Pippa was a poor mill child who passed through the surrounding villages singing the lyrics that ultimately changed the troubled lives she encountered. This great work became a symbol for one of the purposes of this institution: “the influence of unconscious good upon the world.”
It was the genius of Alice Lloyd and co-founder June Buchanan to see that the spirit of learning prevailed both in and out of the classroom, forming the basis of character education. “The Christian Forum,” which required students to discuss ethical and moral issues, life’s purposes and goals, and Christian standards of conduct were all significant in the total education experience. Leadership and service – defined as maturity, responsibility, and a positive attitude, all derived from a Christian ethic in a non-sectarian environment – were part of character building
Today, this tradition remains as a central focus of Alice Lloyd College and is reflected in the leadership of its staff, student activities, Student Work Program, the Caney Convocation Series, a special leadership course required of freshman students, and high standards of conduct, dress and attitude.
Students and parents alike are reminded of the College’s philosophy during orientation sessions. It is hoped that students who have been exposed to the Alice Lloyd College experience will not only be intellectually equipped to continue their pursuit of learning, but also prepared as responsible citizens for a life of service.
