Mission Statement

First adopted by the Board of Trustees in 1999 and reaffirmed in 2015, the College’s mission stems from the broader Statement of Purpose. Centre College’s mission is to prepare students for lives of learning, leadership and service.

Statement of Community

We pledge continuing efforts to build and strengthen a community enriched by our differences and founded upon our common humanity. Centre respects the right of all members of the community to express their individuality in a manner that is consistent with the dignity and welfare of others. Centre strives to create an environment where differences are celebrated rather than discouraged, where individuals have the opportunity to exchange ideas and share in the richness of mutual experience. By valuing the individual’s total character over any single characteristic, Centre will maintain its unique community.

Non-Discrimination Statement

As a fundamental policy and in compliance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and all other applicable non-descrimination laws, Centre College does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, veteran’s status, or genetic information in its educational programs and activities, admissions, and with regard to employment. Centre College hires and promotes its employees and admits its students on the basis of merit, qualification, and character.

Sexual Misconduct Policy

Centre College does not tolerate sexual misconduct of any kind, as it is a form of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX of the Educational Amendments Act of 1972. Click here for the Sexual Misconduct Overview and Policy.
