How Hope Relates to Faith, Life, & Learning
The LAPU community’s Commitment to Faith, Life, and Learning is how the university’s Christian Worldview (including its mission, vision, and core values) leads to the realization of hope.
Diagrammed, LAPU’s approach looks something like this:
Christian worldview → Faith, Life, and Learning → Hope
LAPU’s Christian worldview — as expressed in our mission, vision, and core values — permeates the university and guides our:
- development of programs delivered in the context of faith;
- selection of faculty who teach and serve from a Christian worldview;
- establishment of an institutional culture that seeks to honor God in our actions;
- enrollment of students from diverse backgrounds, experiences, and worldviews.
The realization of hope includes graduating from a program, personal growth, gainful employment, community engagement, and spiritual growth.
