Eckerd College

Eckerd College inspires and empowers individuals to improve the world through mastery of self and a lifetime of learning. Our students are guided on a four-year journey of discovery, with small classes, professor-mentors and a commitment to community service.

Eckerd is an innovative liberal arts and sciences community where students are well-taught and well-loved. 

Our campus is a living, breathing classroom that teaches and inspires us every day. It’s only natural for us to nurture and protect it through conservation efforts. Read more about these efforts and our environment-related programs on our website.
