A Christian College of the Liberal Arts & Sciences

Overview

Our Challenge

President Mullen charges Houghton College to be known for education that is “both transformational and ‘translatable’, … distinguished by exceptional preparation for global engagement, active involvement in social service, and a culture of appreciation and stewardship of Creation”… effective in the changing world of the 21st century.

Our Values

Faith: Unequivocal commitment to Christ as our center.
Community: Recognizing our interdependence and striving to nurture healthy ways of relating and supporting one another.
Education: Transformative lifelong learning and service opportunities.
Stewardship: Extending to all areas of our lives, informing how we should and can protect and nurture all of God’s gifts (our land, relationships, health, finances, education, privileges, etc.).
