EduCativ Posted July 31, 2020 Share Posted July 31, 2020 We are an undergraduate university known for providing a quality liberal arts and sciences university education and fostering a spiritually vibrant and caring community of learning on a beautiful and environmentally friendly campus. We are also recognized for the scholarship and creative activity of our qualified faculty and the exciting and engaging academic, artistic, athletic, musical, and theatrical events that we sponsor as part of our mission of Christ-centered teaching, research, and service the broader community. Our academic programs in the fine arts, humanities, sciences, social sciences, and business and teacher education are taught in the context of a commitment to a comprehensive vision of Christ’s lordship and redemptive work. We seek to give expression to this commitment in all the programs and support services of the university. Small classes and a low student-faculty ratio allow students to be mentored by faculty. Experiential and cooperative education programs enrich the educational experience, while off-campus programs allow students to experience different cultures. Professional and dedicated staff encourage student development in a variety of co-curricular programs.

Redeemer students are being shaped by the Reformed Christian commitment to see faith woven through learning and life. From the classroom to the convocation stage to careers and churches, our faculty, students, and alumni make an impact that resounds in our culture and across the world.

The mission of Redeemer University College is: To offer university-level liberal arts and science education which is Scripturally directed and explores the relation of faith, learning, and living from a Reformed Christian perspective To support research and creative endeavor in this context. To advance knowledge through excellence in teaching and scholarship To be an academic community in which faculty, staff, and students can develop intellectually, socially and spiritually To equip students for lives of leadership and service under the Lordship of Jesus Christ To reach out through academic service to society Moreover, in all these things to glorify God. To be internationally engaged as an excellent liberal arts and sciences university that is unabashedly Christ-centred and prepares students to reflect a distinctive worldview in any vocation and place they are called. The institution's overall purpose is to equip students to fulfill their callings in the Kingdom of God by providing them with a post-secondary education grounded in Scripture. Such a Christian education will enable students: to discern the biblical basis of a Christian worldview, to translate this worldview into a systematic framework for academic work, to acquire an understanding of the profoundly religious nature of the cultural formation, to acquire a historical awareness of the conflicting spiritual roots of contemporary culture, and to apply and develop these insights in the various liberal arts and science and an area of disciplinary specialization. Such an education will strengthen students’ commitment to the Christian faith, and better prepare them to exercise their God-given talents and abilities in the full range of life’s callings and vocations. Students will be enabled to understand the times in which they live and the direction in which their society is headed and to strive for the furtherance of the Lordship of Christ in a life of service to God and their neighbor. Students should develop a well-informed and critical awareness of the main features of contemporary Canadian society, and be able to relate their academic studies to a future vocation of Christian service. The Cross and Our Calling was initially written in 2003 to give fuller expression to Redeemer’s religious identity and founding vision as a Reformed Christian institution seeking to serve the broader Christian community. This document builds on the other supporting and official documents of the university, such as the Statement of Basis and Principles, the Educational Guidelines.
