As a Christian institution, we strive to create and promote an atmosphere consistent with the Christian faith, which encourages the student to develop his/her fullest potential, both in and out of the classroom. This atmosphere is realized through a community of students, staff, and faculty who are distinguished by their commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and to each other. Olivet University is not only interested in teaching the student how to make a living, but rather more importantly how to make a life.
At Olivet University, students are not only encouraged to develop the skill and abilities necessary to respond to the different needs of those around them and the world in which they live, they are also challenged to wrestle with values and personal ethics within the context of a supportive community.
Students are expected to be familiar with the information presented in this catalog and, in any supplements and addenda to this catalog, and with all University policies. Updates to printed information provided on the University website supersede printed publications unless stated otherwise.
