OMNIS ARBOR BONA FRUCTUS BONOS FACIT

Every good tree bears good fruit. This is the principle of our philosophy. All people are created equal, with fundamental duties and rights, including social-economical duties and rights to pursue happiness. At Washington University of Virginia, we are committed to help our students bear good fruit in life and contribute to the community.

OUR MISSION

To develop men and women of character and leadership by inculcating quality Christian education through healthy institutional services so that they make meaningful contributions to the world

FORMATION OF CHARACTER

This is the ultimate goal of our education. Bearing of good fruit is tied to the state of the tree. Likewise, the measure of one’s success must also accompany the measure one’s character. The formation of character, therefore, is the foremost important education that we must endeavor ourselves.

Statement of Faith

  1. We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  2. We believe the Bible to be inspired, the one infallible, authoritative Word of God.
  3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious atonement through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal and visible return in power and glory.
  4. We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he was tempted by Satan and fell, and that, because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely necessary for salvation.
  5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life, and by whom the church is empowered to carry out Christ’s great commission.
  6. We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost, those who are saved unto the resurrection of life and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

Organization and Commitment

Just as our motto says, “Good Tree, Good Fruit”, our goals are focused on individual students, because we believe that each of our students is an agent of Missio Dei, and therefore has meaningful purpose to contribute to all.

Statement of Institutional Effectiveness

Washington University of Virginia is committed to raising its educational standards by undertaking systematic planning and assessment measures to evaluate each program‘s effectiveness. To this end, WUV staff and faculty are committed to making a difference towards institutional growth and student learning by placing what has been learned from the evaluation process and putting it into practice within all aspects of WUV‘s operation, and importantly, doing so which honors and adheres to the university‘s mission.

Philosophy of Education

Inasmuch as God’s Word is the standard by which all things are measured, WUV affirms the following philosophy of education:
  1. The principle that all truth is God’s truth will be applied appropriately in each course.
  2. It is the responsibility of the instructor to encourage the student to learn, and the student must be an active and sincere participant in the educational process.
  3. God requires and graciously enables each believer to learn and apply His Word as the student submits to the Holy Spirit. Therefore, instructors should expect the best from each student.
  4. The Scriptures are given to completely equip the believer for every good work; therefore, it is the responsibility of the instructor to go beyond the communication of biblical truth and to apply it to the student’s life.
  5. The instructor takes the responsibility to encourage the student to master the irreducible minimum of the course contents.
  6. It is the instructor’s responsibility to build the need for the course material before delivering the content in order to motivate students for service.
  7. Since the purpose of biblical education is to glorify God and to serve others, it is the responsibility of the instructor to equip students for service.
  8. Christian education is intended to impact the whole person. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the instructor to encourage the student’s ongoing spiritual growth.

Educational Objectives

To carry out its mission and enable men and women to obtain knowledge, expand skills, and cultivate Christ-like attitudes needed in impacting ministry, missions and the global marketplace, WUV provides education, resources, and guidance to:
  1. Prepare students in obtaining biblical knowledge based on the inerrant Word of God and carefully designed academically compatible curriculum and in integrating the biblical knowledge into the real-life experience—in personal and family life as well as within the professional realm.
  2. Help students build a solid foundation of general knowledge, such as humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences, for broader understanding of life; and motivate students in critical thinking behavior to develop investigational skills for the apologetic defense and promulgation of one’s faith in a pluralistic society.
  3. Prepare students to engage in the business world with clear Christian conduct and values to become living testimonies of the Christian truths.
  4. Equip students for Christian leadership through mentoring programs with the local church pastors, alumni, and faculty members in order to make a positive impact in diverse ministries.
  5. Demonstrate quality in meeting its mission by conducting an effective institutional research and planning program.
  6. Support students in furthering their spiritual, physical, intellectual, emotional, and social maturity through participation in education, extra-curricular activities, and various community services.
  7. Educate students to translate their biblical knowledge into the real-life environment of their ministry to promote sharing partnerships with other Christian churches in obedience to the Great Commission.
  8. Prepare students in the development of their literacy and research skills in using the college library to retrieve data from a variety of sources to promote life-long learning.
  9. Maintain honest and quality relationships by reflecting Christian values within all segments of the college’s community, including but not limited to, students, employees, alumni, donors, and vendors.
