EduCativ Posted July 23, 2020 Share Posted July 23, 2020 From the very start, back in 1874, Andrews University has placed severe scholarship, quality research, and a strong focus on practical Christianity first on the list of things we think are essential about attendance at a Christian university. We started small. Mr. Goodloe Bell, a teacher, started a small school with only 12 students in Battle Creek, Michigan. This was the birth of what we now know as Andrews University. Today, Andrews is the best-known Adventist educational institution in the world. At Andrews, we are serious about giving you choices. We offer options in undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral studies. If you feel like spending a year abroad, you can choose from an impressive range of opportunities at Andrews affiliate schools or service posts around the globe. We are real people at Andrews. Whatever it is you choose to do here, we aim to make sure that you achieve a balance between theory and practice, and experience growth on your spiritual journey. We are named after John Nevins Andrews (1829–1883), the most prominent thinker in the 19th-century Seventh-day Adventist Church. He was also the first sponsored missionary that the Church sent overseas. J.N. Andrews' example of careful thought and compassionate action in Christian life is something we have taken to heart. Our motto is "Seek knowledge. Affirm Faith. Change the World." Students from across the United States and around the globe are attracted to Andrews because of what we stand for and what we offer. "U.S. News and World Report," says that Andrews is one of the most culturally diverse universities in the nation. Andrews University, a distinctive Seventh-day Adventist institution, transforms its students by educating them to seek knowledge and affirm faith to change the world. Andrews University is a Seventh-day Adventist institution. As a Christian school, we encourage strong moral principles and a close relationship with God. We celebrate the diversity of faiths represented at Andrews and respect the differences of persuasion that are present. We believe in a holistic approach to life that balances body, mind, and spirit so that students are fully prepared to serve the world when they finish their studies. Andrews University is a Christian institution representing diversity across global, racial, economic, gender, religious, and generational lines. As a Seventh-day Adventist institution, we are rooted in biblical teaching, "There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for all are one in Jesus Christ" (Galatians 3:28). This is demonstrated in the life of Jesus Christ himself as He crossed barriers, challenged prejudice, and embraced the marginalized groups of his day. Compelled by his gracious example, we outlined in our mission to carry the gospel to people of all cultures around the world. Accordingly, we celebrate the richness of diversity at Andrews University and endeavor to develop cultural competence and intelligence through curricular and co-curricular experiences.

Andrews University offers many unique opportunities for Undergraduate Research, including participating in the J.N.Honors Program and presenting at the Michigan Academy of Science, Arts, and Letters.

They are involved in various research projects, both independently and in cooperation with Andrews's faculty members. Our staff comes from a myriad of backgrounds, including emergency services, military, and education, and through these experiences, we seek to serve our campus from a multi-disciplinary perspective. We are committed to providing professional safety-related services to foster a safe learning and working environment. To ensure that the campus is made aware of emergencies, severe weather, and timely warnings, Andrews University has established a mass notification system called AU Alert. Individuals on our campus can register to receive messages at AU Alert. The Andrews University Office of Campus Safety is committed to the safety and general welfare of each campus community member. The following resources are provided as educational tools for prevention, preparedness, and response techniques for many emergencies. These situations include, but are not limited to, fire safety, hostile threat, inclement weather, theft deterrence, and vehicle safety. At times, emergencies may occur on campus. While we cannot prepare for every eventuality, there are measures to be taken during any emergency, and some steps to be taken for specific emergencies.
