Muhlenberg College, founded in 1848 and located in Allentown, PA, is a top-tier liberal arts college that offers a more comprehensive array of pre-professional programs than almost any institution of a similar size. Along with an impressive and rigorous curriculum, Muhlenberg focuses on the education of the conscience and the elevation of the heart. Muhlenberg also prides itself on focusing on new ideas, discoveries, friendships and opportunities. Through attention to each student, Muhlenberg open doors to self-understanding, to knowledge and deep learning, and to a lifetime of personal and intellectual growth. Theory, practice, ideas, and application are all integrated into the Muhlenberg education.
At Muhlenberg College, education is more than a foundation for learning. Rather, they believe that expanding one’s goals and exceeding one’s potential are at the core of personal growth. Together, the community is committed to an ethos of reaching ever higher; guiding and driving students of extraordinary promise to reach above and beyond their preconceived talents, skills and objectives to achieve prominence and effect change in whatever professions, interests and causes they choose to pursue. (About Muhlenberg)
We highly value our relationship with Muhlenberg College. They have been supporting our scholars since 2013 and were among the first to make a long-term commitment to the SHE-CAN Coalition. Our SHE-CAN scholars make for a strong cohort that supports and learns from each other.
Muhlenberg rounds out our SHE-CAN schools by providing a close-knit community that is welcoming, warm and inclusive. The small school environment provides a very friendly educational experience and is known to be a “caring community.” Each of our scholars feels like they are an integral part of the campus. In fact, our scholars see themselves as highly valued multi-cultural ambassadors who bring an ever-widening perspective of ideas to their peers and colleagues.
