Students Buy Into the OCU Mission

Ohio Christian University has a distinctive mission that guides its vision and growth:

Ohio Christian University prepares students to serve effectively in the Church and society by providing a holistic, Christ-centered, biblically integrated education in the Wesleyan tradition.

Although the last six years have brought great growth, the mission to prepare leaders to serve in church and society has not changed through the past six decades. When the original motion was put forward to form the institution, the desire for its existence was that men and women be taught “to value souls more than money and eternity more than time.” 

In fall 2013, traditional and non-traditional students (AGS) both onsite and online, were asked if OCU has a clear mission. Students overwhelmingly agreed. In fact, on a scale of 1 to 7, this item was rated higher than 6 by each student group. They also affirmed their support of the OCU mission with ratings of 5.9 or higher.

With many great reasons to choose OCU – convenience, locations, affordability, employability, we’re glad that so many students are choosing OCU because of its mission to produce Christian servant leaders to impact the world.
