“The mission of Francis University is to educate students to be leaders who improve the world and impact society, offering excellent programs of religious higher education in the areas of business, counseling, and theology.”
Because we value the importance of our role to educate and disciple Christian leaders, we emphasize the development of character and conduct that reflects Christ-likeness. We know that our graduates will be serving both church and in the world. Therefore, we like to use the curriculum, chapel, student ministry, small group and student life to help them develop their profession and Chris-like character. We will require student to participate in local church service in weekly basis. Academic dean will continue to work on the curriculum development to be relevant to their job market.
