Dear Shorter College Students,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Shorter College! Shorter College was founded by the African Methodist Episcopal Church in 1886. The college is a private, two-year institution located in North Little Rock, AR. It is supported by the African Methodist Episcopal Church. The College has a long history steeped in developing competent leadership among African Americans and providing instructions leading to a general education. As we begin a new era in Shorter College’s history, we want to remain committed to the founders’ vision of excellence for The College.

Rooted in the Christian values and principles of the founding fathers, the college strives to prepare our students for future successes in a holistic manner by instilling the Four C’s of competency, citizenship, culture and character in each of our students.

Additionally, The College has dedicated, committed and professional faculty who will assist you in achieving your goals. This handbook is designed to provide you with preliminary information about programs, course offerings and other services that are necessary for your success. However, if you need additional information, please contact the Office of Academic Affairs. We are prepared to provide personalized and caring services for all of our students.
