York College exists to support God’s transformational work in the lives of people. Curricular and co-curricular programs and experiences intend to lead the entire community to a positive expression of spiritual values. A rapidly changing professional, social, and technological environment dictates that each student is encouraged to apply critical thinking and knowledge integration skills, and to evaluate changing circumstances in the context of faith. Academic discovery is a God-honoring endeavor characterized by the pursuit of truth and inquiry within the context of intellectual disciplines. The responsible handling of academic freedom provides Christian scholars opportunities to explore both a diverse world and their faith. Service is the means by which people of God live out their faith. Christ calls us to lives of service expressed by faith, both locally and globally, as we respond to opportunities to the needs of others.
