The Week of March 18
All faculty and staff members should be able to address questions concerned with the mission of Lindenwood University when the HLC visiting team is on campus October 28-30.
Lindenwood University’s mission statement consists of three sections:
The Mission: Lindenwood University offers values-centered programs leading to the development of the whole person — an educated, responsible citizen of a global community.
The Purposes: Lindenwood is committed to
• Providing an integrative liberal arts curriculum,
• Offering professional and pre-professional degree programs,
• Focusing on the talents, interests, and future of the student,
• Supporting academic freedom and the unrestricted search for truth,
• Affording cultural enrichment to the surrounding community,
• Promoting ethical lifestyles,
• Developing adaptive thinking and problem-solving skills,
• Furthering lifelong learning.
The Institutional Identity: Lindenwood is an independent, public-serving liberal arts university that has a historical relationship with the Presbyterian Church and is firmly rooted in Judeo-Christian values. These values include belief in an ordered, purposeful universe, the dignity of work, the worth and integrity of the individual, the obligations and privileges of citizenship, and the primacy of the truth.
