Humanics Philosophy

It starts with Humanics, the age-old Greek ideal of the balanced individual. We believe, as did the ancient Greeks, that a person’s emotional, intellectual and physical lives are interconnected. The Humanics philosophy calls for the education of the whole person—in spirit, mind, and body—for leadership in service to others. And, we represent this ideology with a triangle. You may have seen a couple around campus.

Sounds pretty deep, but it's really not that complicated.

Simply put, it's not all about books around here. It's also about bodies, attitudes, and emotions. So, while preparing for your life of helping others, your education at Springfield College will also provide you with an understanding of how the elements of Humanics work together. It’s all about balance. 

And so far, the balancing act seems to be working.

In more than 60 countries worldwide (at last count), Springfield College’s more than 45,000 alumni are providing leadership and making a difference—as coaches, corporate CEOs, social workers, authors, medical professionals, athletic trainers, software engineers—and that’s just the beginning.

We think the ancient Greeks would be proud.
