Our Community

A Community for the Common Good

The Lynch School community is defined by collaboration and cooperation. Each faculty member, student, and administrator actively supports one another—and the success of the schools and the people we serve. 

Together, we approach education as an opportunity to transform minds and lives—intellectually, emotionally, morally, socially, and spiritually—as we enhance the human condition, expand imaginations, and make the world more just.

Our interests are diverse, but a steadfast dedication to making a difference in the world unites us. Our 1,169 students, 111 faculty members, and 24,263 Lynch School alumni bring our mission to life every day in communities across the world.


We’re trying to help people develop not just as intellectual and civic beings but also as emotional, social, ethical, and spiritual beings, helping them to lead lives of meaning and purpose.
