Grand Canyon University

Grand Canyon University, one of the leading Bible colleges in the USA, prepares learners to become global citizens, critical thinkers, effective communicators and responsible leaders by providing an academically challenging, values-based curriculum from the context of our Christian heritage. The curriculum at GCU is designed to prepare students with the skills and knowledge needed in the contemporary job market. Students are challenged to develop these tools and to push their intellectual limits in order to become successful in their careers. In addition, the curriculum fosters personal discovery so that students realize within themselves the elements of compassion and accountability. A uniquely important element of the GCU mission statement is the defining attribute of its Christian heritage. The GCU community defines its culture by the way its members reflect a committed relationship with Christ and creates the GCU experience in a manner that reflects His teachings to support students and graduates through a successful life journey. These normative Christian values are integral to the development, maturity, and education of ethical and morally respectable citizens who continue on the path of life-long learning. Each element or objective of the GCU mission statement is uniquely addressed in the GCU curriculum and by the GCU culture, which shapes a rich learning environment from which students graduate with professional and life skills. When learners graduate from GCU, our expectation is that they will be global citizens, critical thinkers, effective communicators, and responsible leaders. A University grounded in Christian theology begins with the idea that students are created in the image of God. A values-based education emphasizing Community, Character, and Citizenship in the context of a Christian worldview would seek to teach, reinforce, support, and cause students to contemplate certain foundational values which Christian values contends lead to a good life. It would be difficult to completely and accurately quantify what an individual student might take away from a values-based education. The reason for the difficulty stems from the fact that being made in the image of God also means that the learner is a free moral agent and has the right to choose his or her values. Our curriculum provides a frame within which the individual examines his or her worldview. The goal is not to mandate an exact set of values, rather it is to challenge each learner to consider his or her present values and assess his or her beliefs and behaviors. Socrates said, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” A values based education incorporates structured opportunities to consider these concepts and their implications for the individual learner. These concepts form a framework that allows students to clarify their beliefs and decide who they are. In general, Christian heritage would contend that there is such a thing as truth to be sought after. Although we may not be able to apprehend it fully, it does exist. We were designed with certain gifts and talents and we are called upon to refine those gifts through education and practice. Then, we are responsible to use those gifts and talents in willing service to God and our fellow human beings. God has a purpose for our lives and He prepares and calls us to that purpose. This concept transcends and distinguishes work not as a mere occupation, but rather a calling or vocation. Values-based education suggests that certain ideas and actions are more desirable than others. As a community, we strive to exemplify stewardship, excellence, and integrity through what Christianity calls the Fruit of the Spirit. That is what makes Grand Canyon University one of the leading Bible colleges in the USA. Please click here to view a pdf of our Vision and Mission Statements. At Grand Canyon University, one of the leading Bible colleges in the USA, faith is defined from the context of our Christian heritage. Our student, faculty, and staff demographics represent over 20 denominations, allowing us to embrace a broad spectrum of faith.

Grand Canyon University embraces the beliefs of the Christian faith as its theological position.
