Mission Statement William Jewell College promises students an outstanding liberal arts education that cultivates leadership, service, and spiritual growth within a community inspired by Christian ideals and committed to open, rigorous intellectual pursuits.
Background Statement

William Jewell College is committed to bringing together talented students and gifted faculty mentors within a vibrant community sparked by a rigorous and intentional liberal arts curriculum. A full range of personal and professional development experiences are presented by the selective national liberal arts college’s location within the Kansas City metropolitan area of more than two million.

Established in 1849, the vision of our founders was to create an institution capable of developing leaders who would shape a changing world. For more than a century and a half, Jewell has remained committed to offering students a unique series of intellectually and socially transforming experiences that inspire both competence and confidence.

William Jewell College is a four-year, private, residential liberal arts college with enrollment of approximately 1,060 full-time students. Jewell students enjoy all the amenities of a small-town campus setting with big-city access. Just 20 minutes from Kansas City, the 200-acre campus is perched above the historic town of Liberty among the rolling hills of western Missouri.

The College offers Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degrees in more than 40 academic majors including a major in nonprofit leadership, pre-professional programs and self-designed majors. Jewell’s highest-enrolled majors include business, psychology, nursing, biology and teacher education. Distinctive programs include the Oxbridge Honors Program, undergraduate research in many disciplines and a strong leadership development program. The College is also well-known for its science programs, study abroad opportunities, competitive athletic teams, low student to faculty ratio and nationally-recognized Greek system.

Impact Statement

William Jewell College fills a significant void as not only the only institution in our region invited to join the Annapolis Group for leading national independent liberal arts colleges, but also for how we educate. The essence of Jewell’s core curriculum is a commitment to critical thinking. Through all degree programs—as well as extended and enhanced educational opportunities such as study abroad and service learning—students are taught through an emphasis on research, writing skills, leadership, innovation and service. With critical thinking at the core of each student’s academic experience—whether in the classroom or beyond—Jewell is solidifying a national reputation as a college that inspires intellectual inquiry, encourages experiential learning and emboldens our next generation of thought-leaders.

 

The outcomes of this approach are evident through the 98.9 percent of Jewell graduates who are employed or in graduate school within six months of graduation. They are accepted to the world’s top graduate programs and in recent years have received nationally competitive grants and scholarships: Fulbright, Goldwater Scholars, Rhodes, Truman, National Institute of Health, National Science Foundation and Teach For America.

 

William Jewell College is focused on strengthening and positioning the College for the future and preparing the coming generations to live accountable, ethical lives of service and contribution. 

Needs Statement

William Jewell College has identified the following items as the most pressing needs of our institution:

  • Launch a new data science major in fall 2018
  • Greater connection to the community of Liberty, Mo and Greater Kansas City
  • Increase scholarship support and the endowment
  • Greater access to higher education, with a focus on Kansas City area students
  • Enhance the living environment with improvements to campus housing, especially for first-year students
  • Make improvements to the Mabee Center for Physical Education

Examples of Program Success Jewell students graduate from college ready for the next step; in fact, 98.9 percent of our students have a job or are attending graduate school within six months of graduation. Many choose to pursue advanced degrees in a variety of areas including research, business, medicine, accounting, international relations, STEM, law and other disciplines. Others enter the workforce as teachers, nurses, business leaders, technical advisors, research assistants and nonprofit professionals.

Prestigious awards of this nature look for such attributes as intellectual skill, effective communication, responsible leadership and concern for the common good.
Description
The financial assistance program at William Jewell College ensures that all students have access to the College. More than 99 percent of students receive financial aid from the College every year. Without that financial support, many students would find it financially difficult or impossible to attend college.
After completing the sophomore year, students may apply for a minimum $2,000 Journey Grant to pursue a self-designed academic-enriching experience. To date, students have visited 59 countries for research projects, study-away experiences, entrepreneurial opportunities, internships, civic engagement initiatives and service. This unique program allows students to live what they learn by encouraging exploration, self-discovery and change.

Short-Term Success

A solid financial aid and scholarship program assists in recruitment and retention of students. Both of these areas affect immediate and long-term net revenue goals established by the College. Annual and periodic reviews of financial aid expenditures before, during and upon conclusion of the recruitment cycle, guide the implementation and follow-through process.

Long-Term Success
The financial aid and scholarship program at William Jewell College provides merit and/or need-based funding to students who meet pre-defined credentials and criteria. The financial aid strategy is designed to attract students who will be successful at the College by ensuring that the College is an affordable option for them.
Program Success Monitored By

Ongoing analysis is essential for adherence to the financial aid and scholarship program’s strategic plan. Monthly and annual reviews of financial aid expenditures reveal areas of weakness and strength. This ongoing review enables refinement as the recruitment cycle unfolds. Comparisons are made to historical data. Individual follow-up by College personnel provide essential communication and intervention to ascertain the strategy’s success. Appropriate modifications to the strategy may result based on additional data analysis, market indicators, or other information of value. Acceptance of financial aid offers by student prospects sends a message that the College’s scholarship and financial assistance program provides affordability to families.

Examples of Program Success William Jewell College offers generous aid packages so students can experience the value of a Jewell education and have the freedom to grow through internships, independent research, study abroad, campus leadership and more. During the 2016-2017 academic year, 99% of all students received some kind of financial assistance. More than $20.1 million was awarded in scholarships and grants to supplement federal, state and other external awards, with first-year students receiving an average of $22,452.
