We believe our faith is supported by knowledge. As a learning community, we foster a journey of lifelong learning, encouraging one another to seek truth with fervor. This spirit of academic excellence enriches our relationships, our world and our faith in Jesus Christ.


We believe that servant leadership is embodied perfectly in the life and person of Jesus Christ. We humbly set aside self-interest for the interests of others, leading in the strength of love given by God, because love for others builds up God’s community. By following Christ’s example, we create a culture of leadership characterized by joyful servanthood.


We assist students at every stage during their career preparation, from self-assessment and choosing a major to practicing interview techniques. The Career Networks office is available to assist you in finding employment by offering a variety of resources for internships, performance tracking, job searches, interview preparation, networking and more. By offering a wealth of free programs and services we strive to help students make informed decisions about career goals and find opportunities related to their professional objectives.
