Liberty University’s Values

Since 1971, excellence, mentorship, commitment to a biblical worldview, service-mindedness, and responsible stewardship have defined who we are. And that’s how it’s going to stay.

Excellence is part of our DNA. From the beginning, we’ve been saying, “If it’s Christian, it ought to be better.” From academics to athletics to the way we train students to be champions in every area of life, excellence is more than a buzzword — it’s our standard.

Mentorship means that our students are not statistics — they’re family. And earning a Liberty degree means not only getting an academically rigorous education, but also sitting under experienced professionals who care about their students and who personally mentor them. Liberty students learn to lead under leaders who build them up and send them out, equipping them to live life after graduation with wisdom and grace.

Our commitment to a biblical worldview is not lip service but the foundation of our identity as a Christian university. And though we are evangelical in both tradition and method, we celebrate the commonalities shared by all Christians — they are what unify us and equip us to celebrate our diversity as individuals.

Being service-minded means making others a priority. Whether it’s serving one another within our community — our classmates, coworkers, and peers — or working to effect social change outside our community, we believe coming alongside those in the midst of difficulty and standing up for them is a privilege and an important way we demonstrate being Champions for Christ.

Responsible stewardship has always been a hallmark of Liberty’s character. We hold ourselves accountable to decisions that affect our students and our community — from developing innovative scholarship solutions to promoting sustainability and environmental responsibility. We resolve to give our best and do our best with whatever God graciously provides us.
