Antioch College was a private, independent liberal arts college in Yellow Springs, Ohio, United States, and was the founder and flagship institution of the six campus Antioch University system. Founded in 1852 by the Christian Connection, the college began operating in 1853 with Horace Mann as its first president. Its educational approach blended practical work experience with classroom learning and participatory community governance, and students received narrative evaluations instead of letter grades. The enrollment during its last academic year of 2007-08 was under 200 students. In June 2007, the University’s Board of Trustees announced that the college would be suspending operations as of July 2008, and would try to reopen in 2012. More than half of the Antioch College faculty filed a lawsuit in August 2007 to bar Antioch University from firing the college's tenured faculty or liquidating the college's assets. The announcement sparked an intensive fundraising drive by the college's alumni association. On November 3, 2007, the University Board of Trustees agreed to explore alternatives for the college to remain open. Negotiations broke down in late March 2008, however, greatly increasing the likelihood that the college would close at the end of the 2007-2008 academic year. The College closed in June 2008. However, the Trustees passed a resolution on June 7, 2008 stating "that the Trustees request the [Alumni] Association create the necessary process, plans, and resources for the development of an independent four-year, residential, liberal arts college in Yellow Springs, Ohio, and a business plan for the transfer of assets from the University, and to present those plans to the Trustees for their consideration and approval and that the Association present its timetable for implementing this request to the Trustees." On July 18, 2008, the Dayton Daily News reported that the directors of the Antioch College Alumni Association and trustees of Antioch University have "agreed on the framework for a plan to create a new, fully independent Antioch College." Antioch College was a member of the Great Lakes Colleges Association and the North American Alliance for Green Education. It was formerly also a member of the Eco League. Current efforts to keep the College alive include the Nonstop Liberal Arts Institute and the College Revival Fund . On July 17, 2008, the Antioch University Board of Trustees and the Board of Directors of the Antioch College Alumni Association announced their intention to create a fully independent Antioch College that would open at an early date. The negotiations will be facilitated in part by the Great Lakes College Association .

Mission Statement

An Antioch education is shaped to the mold of human experience. This is a radically democratic education: every theory, every belief, every ideal is re-examined and subjected to the test of experience. We ask our students to bridge the gap between theory and practice. Their work is marked by scholarly rigor and civic engagement. They come to know the world by analyzing it and living deeply within it. They come to know justice by studying it and practicing it. They become humanists in the broadest, deepest sense of the word: citizens and scholars capable of meaningful action, continuous growth, and enlightened leadership.
