Our mission is: To develop Christian leaders. Of course, students from other faiths are welcomed and encouraged to come here. The single greatest source of value added is the potential for undergraduates to work with dedicated faculty whose primary focus is undergraduate education. Students have the opportunity to receive much more individual instruction and mentoring from faculty than is normal for higher education. Students also benefit from caring instructors who tend to be very understanding and supportive when students have to deal with such outside problems as illness, serious illness in the family, or death in the family.
