A Franklin & Marshall education is based on a simple, powerful concept: Together, we create the way forward.
We explore the frontiers of knowledge, setting new standards of academic excellence. We personalize education, encouraging our students to discover and expand their ambitions. We stand for what matters, fostering a community that values the common good. And we succeed together, giving the world the kinds of citizens it most needs: confident, adaptable problem solvers.
Honoring the Legacy, Building the Future
There is a heartbeat of F&M. You can feel it pulsing through the conversations in the classroom. You can hear it pounding in Mayser Gym when the Diplomats defend the home court. And you can sense it swelling with pride at Commencement. Before long, every member of our community becomes a part of that heartbeat.Mission & History
