We were founded by Presbyterians, but we welcome all

Monmouth College was founded in 1853 by Scotch-Irish Presbyterians who wanted to train a well-educated clergy and encourage a comprehensive, liberal arts education for all. We honor this Christian heritage and maintain our affiliation with the Presbyterian Church (USA) and reflect the PC(USA)’s commitment to ecumenism and diversity by valuing students and faculty members from all denominations, faiths, religious and non-religious backgrounds.
