NNU students will grow toward Christlikeness: demonstrating ethical behavior, loving and respecting others, offering grace as they have received it, building up the community of Christ, and representing Christ to the world.
NNU students will demonstrate understanding and appreciation of the liberal arts, expertise in a major field of study, and professional growth. Throughout their lives they will endeavor to reach their potential and be transformed by their pursuit of knowledge about God and creation.
NNU students will apply their natural gifts and acquired knowledge to respond creatively to life: producing original works of art, new synthesis of knowledge, novel expression of ideas, and inspired solutions to problems—in the home, the workplace, the church, and the greater community.
NNU students will be faithful stewards of their knowledge, skills, and resources, and be agents of social justice and divine mercy. Compassionately they will show love for people of all faiths and cultures, and identify with and advocate for those in need-- locally and globally.
