We must be Agents of Change

October 2012

Washington Adventist University remains true to its mission to produce “graduates who bring competence and moral leadership to their communities.

Along with our faculty and staff, I am committed to making this vision a reality by ensuring that our students get the best education possible. It is imperative that a WAU degree remains a cherished prize, indicative of our graduates possession of certain intellectual capabilities as well as enhanced spirituality, creativity, flexibility and analytical capabilities. It must be a distinction that is earned, not a commodity that is bought.

As a university and more so, as a faith-based institution, I believe that agents of change come from within universities. To this end, I believe we must prepare our students for life, and challenge them to go beyond the confines of conventional thinking. We must continue the task of teaching our students how to think, not what to think.

Individually and collectively, we must make the hard choices. We must seek truth; we must leave a legacy of service to humanity.


This is Washington Adventist University!
