The EPIC Advantage

The EPIC Advantage provides at least one funded internship, student-faculty research experience or project to every student. Earlham helps students find opportunities that link their academic and personal interests with possible career paths. The College has established relationships with internship sponsors and research sites across the United States and around the world.

EPIC Centers

Collaboration is embedded in everything we do. No matter what major you choose, our multidisciplinary academic centers dedicated to career and community engagement, entrepreneurship and innovation, global education, global health, and social justice can help focus your EPIC journey.

By sponsoring events, providing mentors, and offering a variety of student internship and research experiences, the EPIC Centers support you in planning your individual Earlham EPIC— a powerful combination of the knowledge, skills, and experiences you need to create a positive change in the world.

The “CoLab” is short for “CoLaboratory”— a new EPIC space that houses the three interdisciplinary academic Centers. The CoLab is designed to highlight collaborative inquiry on significant national and global challenges of the 21st century.


The CoLab has several collaborative research and learning spaces perfectly suited for small group learning. This space is perfect for a range of special events including workshops, roundtable discussions, and other formal and informal gatherings.
