Our goals

The Office for Student Development exists to meet three primary goals:

  1. To provide a campus climate that is conducive to personal spiritual growth, intensive academic study, positive social development, and physical well-being.
  2. To promote a learning community that practices a lifestyle submissive to biblical mandates, exemplifies modesty and discretion, pursues excellence in all endeavors, and demonstrates sacrificial love for others.
  3. To produce a college graduate who is a committed Christian; growing in godly character, personal discipline, and spiritual discernment, obedient to the Word of God and driven by a passionate heart to serve God in life and ministry.
