WE VALUE FAITH AND LEARNING IN THE ARTS AND SCIENCES.
We at Victory University seek to gather a community of faculty and student scholars to unite serious inquiry in the liberal arts and sciences with authentic faith and redemptive action, and thus together strive for a kind of excellence rarely found in higher education in the United States.
We affirm the central, unifying beliefs of historic Christianity, and our starting points for academic inquiry and service are unapologetically biblical. We seek nothing less than the restoration of the liberal arts and sciences to their place of submission to Christ’s authority and to their prominence as the crucial and defining experience of higher education. Our intent is to educate and encourage spiritual formation in men and women who know, love, and profess truth, and who confidently can apply reason as focused by the Christian view of life to any vocation they pursue or problem they encounter.
WE VALUE DIVERSITY, UNITY, AND MATURITY.
Given our location in a major urban center, we believe that Victory University is uniquely situated to model diversity and unity within a single institution. We delight in the richly diverse ethnic and Christian traditions that mark life in our city and in our classes. We believe that cultural and generational differences, instead of dividing and hampering us, serve rather as powerful sources of stimulation toward Christian maturity: a benefit to students, the community, and generations to come.
WE VALUE WISDOM, SERVICE, AND CHRIST-LIKE LEADERSHIP.
We believe that God will use the education we provide to impart His wisdom to faculty and to students alike, and that our graduates will seek opportunities for idealistic and creative leadership, continuous learning, and responsible service in their professional, civic, and church-related spheres, fulfilling their calling to engage the surrounding culture with a Christian mind, and spreading the salt and light of truth to every area of life and throughout the world. Encouraging voluntary service and internships, we develop partnerships between the college and the businesses, professions, churches, schools, and other organizations comprising the external community.
Together as a community, we are learning to apply our faith and resources to serve the needs of a major urban center. Together we endeavor to make Victory University a center for the development of urban professional leaders—men and women who have put on wisdom with knowledge and, animated by faith, will transform communities and advance God’s purposes in the world.
