GCU is committed to integrating faith across all aspects of the GCU community, including work, learning and service. This initiative stems from GCU’s mission to educate students from a Christian perspective and to prepare them for careers that honor God while serving others. Faculty and staff are committed to honoring GCU’s Christian beliefs, values and practices in accord with our mission and vision, while students receive an education from the context and heritage of our distinctively Christian worldview.
One way we integrate faith and learning is by weaving our Christian worldview across curriculum in all of our degree programs. Each program’s curriculum is collaboratively developed and centrally managed in a manner that integrates the Christian worldview and incorporates biblical principles. From the first course to the last, it is the university’s goal that all of our graduates be able to express aspects of the Christian worldview which affect human value and dignity, ethical decision-making, academic disciplines and vocation.
By incorporating the Christian worldview into our curriculum, our graduates have the opportunity to gain the skills, knowledge and values-based foundation to carry out GCU's mission of preparing learners to become global citizens, critical thinkers, effective communicators and responsible leaders. It is through values-oriented learning experiences that our students develop into empowered graduates who are prepared to lead and serve in the local and global community.
