JohnWesley, the founder of Methodism, espoused a Christianfaith that embraced a social consciousness. In the nineteenthcentury, American Methodists founded many liberal artscolleges.Asa Mahan, the first president of Oberlin College inOhio, became the founding president of Adrian College in1859. Like John Wesley, he opposed slavery and believed inwhat he called “the power of action.”Although its students and faculty come from manyreligious backgrounds, the College encourages all membersof the community to struggle with moral and spiritual valuequestions growing out of the College’s United Methodistheritage of commitment to Christian traditions and values,concern for peace and justice, and an ecumenicalunderstanding of human spiritual experience.Because of its Methodist traditions, Adrian College hasbeen open from its inception to men and women from allbackgrounds. The College continues its commitment tocreating a community that reflects human diversity. It istherefore actively inclusive, seeking to attract students,faculty, and staff from segments of the population that havenot been fully represented in higher education.Learning throughout a lifetimeContinuing to ask important questions; pursuingknowledge in each new age; remaining open to newlearning experiences.Thinking criticallyDeveloping critical habits of mind; exploring multiplepoints of view; raising thoughtful questions, identifyingproblems and solutions.Crossing boundaries and disciplinesDeveloping literacy in multiple fields; personifying theliberal arts experience; making connections acrossdisciplines.Developing creativityEngaging in creative arts; developing creative talentsand skills; recognizing and employing figurativeexpression.Ribbons of ExcellenceIn 1887, the graduating seniors at Adrian Collegepresented a cane in the form of a shepherd’s crook to theofficers of the junior class. Symbolic of leadership andcarved with the Latin motto, “No victory without work,” thecane has been handed down every year by the graduatingclass. Each class has also attached a ribbon to the cane withthe names of its graduates listed on the ribbon.In 2007, the academic community at Adrian Collegeadopted the idea of the ribbons to represent its standards ofexcellence. From the long-standing tradition of the ribbonsattached to the shepherd’s crook at graduation, these newribbons of excellence have been developed to support theCollege’s mission statement. Just as the Latin inscription on1

General InformationThe CampusGeneral InformationAdrian College is located in Adrian, Michigan, thecounty seat of Lenawee County in the southeastern part ofthe state.

State and U.S. highways and nearbyexpressways provide convenient access to the metropolitanareas of Detroit, Toledo, Chicago, Indianapolis, Clevelandand Pittsburgh. Both the Detroit and Toledo airports arewithin an hour’s drive.For nearly a century, the Adrian campus consisted ofseveral brick buildings that fronted on Madison Street. In themid-1950’s, largely through the generosity of majorbenefactor Ray W. Herrick, development of a new andmodern physical plant was begun.Today, the College extends over 100 acres in a westside residential section of the Adrian community. TheAdrian campus melts together its over 160-year history withits modern state-of-the-art facilities. Almost all facilities oncampus were renovated over the past decade. The original“college promenade” with its carefully groomed lawns andstately old trees now forms the eastern boundary of the maincampus. A carillon tower on the east and a contemporarychapel on the west are familiar landmarks of the central mall.The main campus boundaries include Madison, Williams,Michigan and Charles Streets and connects the College withstate highway M-34 to the south and business route U.S. 223to the north.

Now, however,instead of a row of brick buildings, the campus incorporatesapproximately 150 acres, 15 academic and servicebuildings, 26 residence halls and units, and nine majorathletic facilities and fields.The Articles of Association provide that the Board ofTrustees shall consist of not more than 35 members,including three to six who are nominated by the Detroit andWest Michigan Conferences of The United MethodistChurch. Three to six trustees are elected by the AdrianCollege Alumni Association, and the remaining 18-23 areelected by the board itself. Two faculty and two studentrepresentatives serve as non-voting associate trustees.History of the CollegeAdrian College evolved from a theological institutefounded by the Wesleyan Methodist denomination at Leoni,Michigan, a small town east of Jackson, in 1845. In 1855this institute united with the Leoni Seminary, a MethodistProtestant institution, to establish Michigan Union College.Legend states that members of the College becameconcerned about the environment at Leoni, which wasnicknamed “Whiskey Town.” In 1859, this concern, andother circumstances, made it advisable to relocate or close.In the same year, Dr. Asa Mahan, pastor of the PlymouthCongregational Church in Adrian and a well-knowneducator, was encouraged by citizens of the community toestablish a college. Mahan had served as the first presidentof Oberlin College and, previously, as an officer of LaneTheological Seminary in Cincinnati, Ohio.Dr. Mahan and his colleagues invited the officials andsupporters of the closing Michigan Union College to join inestablishing the new college at Adrian. After the invitationwas accepted, the story says, the library holdings wereloaded on an ox-cart in March 1859 and transported the 60miles to the campus site on the west side of Adrian.On March 28, 1859, Adrian College was chartered bythe Michigan legislature as a degree-granting institutionwith Dr. Mahan as its first president. Through a series ofconsolidations and denomination unifications, the Collegehas maintained its relationship with The United MethodistChurch.For almost 100 years, the campus consisted of severalbrick buildings stretching along Madison Street. Most ofwhat is now the campus was woods and fields. In the mid1950s, the College, encouraged by the generosity of Ray W.Herrick, embarked on a building program, which created thebasis for the present campus.Today, when students walk in the area bounded on theeast by Madison Street and edged by Downs Hall, ValadeHall, Cornelius House, and Herrick Tower, one will walk onthe same ground that students hurried across in
