Mission Statements, Creeds, and Covenants

Mission Statements

In this section, the editors of the Character Clearinghouse identify mission statements from colleges and universities across the nation that portray fundamental tenants of character. While institutions of higher education instill character within students in a variety of ways, intentional goal setting for character development receives little attention. The selected mission statements describe intentional character development among college students. Each image representing the respective college or university takes viewers to the website containing the mission statement.
