Unstoppable, Academics-panel | Earlham College Skip to Content

Education is more than timelines or theories to memorize. Real learning means fanning the sparks of curiosity and testing ideas in the real world. It means following the truth wherever it leads – joyfully, boldly, relentlessly. This directive takes Earlhamites around the world, to the frontiers of science, and into the depths of the human mind.


Education is also personal – it teaches us to see what makes us come alive. Is it ethnomusicology? Entomology? English? Whatever the subject, Earlhamites also don’t leave their learning behind in the classroom, it thrives on campus sidewalks, dorm rooms and the dining hall in a community that cherishes learning and encourages intellectual risk taking.
