WHAT MAKES PLNU UNIQUE?

We are committed to shaping students’ academic, personal, and spiritual growth. This means our mission isn’t simply to prepare you for a career after you graduate — though that’s part of it — but to shape you into a thoughtful, service-minded, and engaged member of your community and world. In short, we are committed to helping you become who you are fully called to be. We believe this happens when a critical exploration of various fields of thought — from the sciences to business to the humanities — is embraced with a concern for serving others and an openness to God’s grace at work in our communities, nations, and lives.

Our faculty members are known for their excellence as teachers and scholars in their respective fields, as well as for their commitment to forming relationships with students built around mentorship and accountability to help students thrive academically, professionally, and spiritually.

At PLNU, the small student-to-teacher ratio of 15:1 really does mean you can have one-on-one relationships with professors who are just as concerned with who you are becoming as they are with how you are performing. We encourage students to move beyond a one-dimensional education and toward one that fosters vigorous and rewarding academic exploration through summer research programs, study abroad programs, graduate field experience projects, honors programs, and more.

Through faculty mentorships and a host of academic opportunities, you’ll develop the perspective, knowledge, and experience necessary to pursue a purposeful career after you graduate.
