School Information
"Paine College Mission Statement is reflective of the nature and purpose of the institution as a church-related liberal arts institution providing a high caliber education. The Mission Statement reflects the founding goals of the college and it is comprehensive in establishing the institution as grounded in Methodism and providing a basis for the institution's operational foci. The statement is current as it is periodically reviewed, evaluated and approved by the governing body with appropriate input from its various constituencies. The Mission also firmly ties the College to its Biblical Foundation Statement" (Source: https://www.paine.edu/web/about/about). Founded in 1882, the college has a total undergraduate enrollment of approximately 400 students. Its student to faculty ratio is 9 to 1.
