In September of 2010, McPherson College had a "big idea" - that the classic concept of liberal arts was intimately tied to the modern idea of Entrepreneurship. The faculty and staff then started to weave the concepts of entrepreneurship across the curriculum and student life, regardless of a student's chosen major.
The idea is called "Freedom to Jump", and it transcends any one department, giving students the room to experiment and explore - while still landing on their feet. McPherson College students discover that the only failure is the failure to learn.
