How can you apply
this to your
experience while at
GCU places a strong emphasis on integrating faith into every aspect of the university
community, including learning, work, and service. The "One Foundation" is rooted in
Christian principles, and GCU seeks to maintain unity while embracing the diversity
of traditions and denominations within its community.
As a student at GCU, I can apply this by actively engaging with the Christ-focused
curriculum and seeking to understand how my faith informs and impacts my
academic pursuits and future career choices. By weaving the Christian worldview
into the curriculum, GCU enables students to develop a strong foundation of values
and ethics, preparing them to become transformative leaders who serve others and
contribute positively to society.
The Doctrinal Statement and Ethical Positions Statement provide clarity and
alignment on matters of faith and ethics, guiding the community towards faithfulness,
excellence, and service to God and others. As a student, I can uphold these beliefs in
my interactions with others, both on campus and in the wider community, fostering a
culture of civility, compassion, and respect. Ultimately, GCU's commitment to faith
integration will help shape my identity and actions, allowing me to find purpose and
contribute meaningfully to the world around me.
What does service
outside of the
classroom mean to
you? How can you
apply service while at
Service outside of the classroom, to me, means actively engaging with the
community and using my skills, time, and resources to make a positive impact on
others' lives. It involves selflessly serving and addressing the needs of those around
me, fostering a spirit of compassion and empathy. At GCU, I can apply service by
participating in volunteer activities, joining service-oriented clubs or organizations,
and seeking opportunities to contribute to local and global communities. Whether
through outreach programs, community service projects, or social initiatives, I can
embody GCU's mission of serving others while honoring God and make a
meaningful difference during my time at the university.
