A Transformative Education

At the Lynch School, acclaimed scholar-practitioners use their experience improving communities to provide a world-class education that extends beyond the classroom. Practical experiences complement our highly ranked programs’ rigorous, relevant coursework—an approach that focuses on educating the whole person and developing reflective leaders who enhance the human condition. 

In the classroom and in the field, through internships, practicums, research opportunities, and innovative programs, Lynch School students acquire the knowledge and skills needed to transform lives and strengthen communities.

Educating the Whole Person

The Lynch School employs a holistic approach to student formation: We educate our students as whole people—as intellectual, emotional, moral, social, and spiritual individuals—so they can help others flourish and lead lives of purpose.
