The Northwestern Difference

Courageous and faithful. Those words are part of our mission as a Christian liberal arts college. Together they describe what we want students to be as learners. As Christians. As difference-makers. Our graduates are more than just smart. More than just successful. Because our world needs people prepared for more than just intellectual achievement. It needs people who are also compassionate. Committed. Courageous and faithful. That’s the Northwestern difference.
