A student studying in SPU's library

Christian higher education is uniquely positioned in the broader sector of higher education to pay attention to holistic student formation. At SPU, we want to help students develop intellectual and practical skills to become ready for jobs, but, to quote John Wesley, we also want them ‘to grow more perfect in love.’
