It is also one of the few colleges in the South to have operated more than 160 years under the same name and with the same affiliation: the United Methodist Church. Today, Emory & Henry is a vibrant, refreshing liberal arts college comprised of young men and women from around the world. Our students gain insight into global issues and politics, a knowledge of how society is shaped and governed, and a realization that they can affect positive change in their world.
