    General InformationMission

    The mission of Muskingum College is to offer quality academic programs inthe liberal arts and sciences in the setting of a residential, coeducational,church-related college and in the context of a caring community whereindividual fulfillment is encouraged and human dignity is respected. Itsprimary purpose is to developintellectually, spiritually, socially andphysicallywhole persons, by fostering critical thinking, positive action,ethical sensitivity and spiritual growth, so that they may lead vocationallyproductive, personally satisfying and socially responsible lives.

    LocationMuskingum College, located in east-central Ohio, is easily accessible by

    major east-west and north-south highways. The Village of New Concord,Muskingums home town, is located on US 22 and 40, along Interstate 70, 115miles west of Pittsburgh and 70 miles east of Columbus. U.S. Interstates 77 and70 intersect ten miles east of New Concord near Cambridge; Zanesville issixteen miles to the west.

    HistoryMuskingum College is rich in tradition, its proud heritage reaching back to

    the first half of the nineteenth century when Ohio was an infant state andcovered wagons were bringing adventurous settlers westward over the newly-completed National Road through New Concord. The Colleges Indian name,sometimes mispronounced and often misspelled, is a source of pride to thosewho cherish the history of that colorful part of frontier America beyond theAlleghenies.

    During its first half-century, Muskingum adhered to the educationalpatterns of the classical college of the period. In 1854, women were admittedon an equal basis with men. After the Civil War, a period of steady growthbegan, accelerating until the frontier classical college of less than a hundredstudents had evolved into a modern liberal arts and sciences college. Today,approximately 1,600 undergraduates and more than 1,000 graduate studentsstudy on Muskingums beautiful 225-acre campus.

    When Franklin College, an important educational institution of thePresbyterian Church in the 19th century, closed in 1927, its alumni rolls came toMuskingum.

    In January 2000, Dr. Anne C. Steele became Muskingum Colleges 20thPresident.

    Presbyterian Heritage On March 18, 1837, the state legislature granted a group of New Concord

    citizens a charter to establish a college in the Village. Because the communitywas settled largely by farm people of Scots-Irish descent, the predominantreligion was Presbyterian. In 1877, Muskingum became associated with theSynod of Ohio of the United Presbyterian Church. With the merger of the
