“College Begins in Kindergarten” is the aim of elementary students at the Hancock- Hamline University Collaborative Magnet School, just across Snelling Avenue from Hamline University. Between the university and the school—called the Collaboration— there is one integrated campus, and Hamline University students have the chance to be incredible role models.  With 97.5% of Hancock students wanting to go on to higher education, there are a wide range of opportunities to work together to make it possible.  Are you a Hamline student who enjoys children and are looking for work study? America Reads/America Counts could be the perfect fit. Would you like to learn from and teach a child about social skills? Hand-in- Hand can match you with a buddy! Would you like to combine your academic field of study with a class-project at Hancock? Consider exploring a new Grade Level-Academic Pairing.  Learn more by contacting the Hancock-Hamline Collaboration coordinator at 651-523-2836.

What are you looking for in life? What do you really care about? How can you put your faith into action and make a difference in the world? How can we create interfaith community too? Religious and Spiritual Life programs at Hamline are committed to building bridges that connect the academic and social aspects of campus life with spiritual exploration and growth. Our programs promote compassion, justice, and concern for the common good, while offering confidential emotional and spiritual support. We also provide rituals and counseling at critical times; weekly and special events in the Buddhist, Christian, Jewish, and Muslim traditions; weekly Multi-Faith Alliance meetings; the Piper Pilgrimage, and stipended opportunities to explore spirituality, values and vocation through the Wesley and Mahle Scholars programs. We also offer spiritual internships and volunteering opportunities through the United Methodist “Imagine No Malaria” Campaign.
