Mission Focus

November 2011


The U.S. News & World Report recently ranked, for the first time, Washington Adventist University in the first tier of Best Colleges in the North Region.  It is certainly an honor to be ranked among some of the top colleges and universities in this region.  It is a result of the significant contributions and hard work of our faculty and staff.

It is an even greater honor to know that along with the U.S News & World Report ranking, an increasing number of parents and students are discovering that Washington Adventist University is a viable and rewarding option for a Christian education.  What makes us distinctive is our focus on the mission of the University:

Washington Adventist University is a learning community committed to the Seventh-day Adventist Christian vision of excellence and service.  This cosmopolitan institution challenges students to seize the opportunities for learning in the nation’s capital in order to become moral leaders in communities throughout the world.

We are committed to the ongoing task of articulating and nurturing a shared mission that engages and empowers members of the learning community in order to be an institution of excellence and to bring out the best in our students.

This is Washington Adventist University!
