Our faculty team collaborate towards the central purpose of promoting human flourishing. This mandate from God is provided in Genesis when God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.” Genesis 1:26.
As God's image bearers, we have a responsibility to nurture the world around us, in particular supporting fellow men and women to pursue a life well-lived. Our Management faculty promote human flourishing through multiple facets including research of systems and people with impact, teaching principled leadership and virtues through role modeling, and enriching our local community.
