About

Our campus is breathtaking–but we’re more proud of our diverse, successful, happy graduates.

Meet E&H Alumni in the world 

Located in the Highlands of Virginia, Emory & Henry has devoted itself since 1836 to the belief that education can have a transformative effect on an individual, a place and ultimately the wider world. 

Emory & Henry College is named for Bishop John Emory, an eminent Methodist church leader, and Patrick Henry, a patriot of the American Revolution and Virginia’s first governor. Together they symbolize the college’s dual emphasis on spiritual growth and civic engagement.


Students enjoy our unique location in the Outdoor Program. Students enjoy our unique location in the Outdoor Program.Inspired by the motto “Increase in Excellence,” the first faculty challenged students to grow and develop intellectually, spiritually and physically.

Today, our mission continues to focus on students as they follow a path of intellectual and spiritual growth on their way to successful futures. That mission, in turn, is extended to others through a broad program of active engagement and community service

You will discover that Emory & Henry is a place of promise made up of warm-hearted, caring people who care about your fulfillment. This is a community that embraces people from all walks of life as they work together to improve the individual and the world. We are people with a mission and a long history devoted to transforming lives and increasing excellence.
