    About Chowan University

    Chowan University is a comprehensive coeducational institution committed to excellence in teaching, learning, scholarly inquiry, and service. The University provides the environment for students to become learners who possess the skills, knowledge, creativity, and ethical values necessary to survive and flourish in a rapidly-changing, culturally diverse, global society. Chowan University, as a church-related institution, was founded upon and is dedicated to Judeo-Christian values. Consistent with this heritage, the University is guided by the historic principles of religious and intellectual freedom-academic excellence, the dignity and worth of each individual, an atmosphere of open dialogue, freedom of inquiry and expression, and a moral commitment to the pursuit of truth. The University fulfills its mission with a careful blend of both liberal arts programs and professional programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Recognizing that such a blend of knowledge and experience is particularly suited to the needs of contemporary society, Chowan emphasizes the need to connect general education with specialized education, theoretical learning with practical learning, and intellectual skills with career skills in all areas of study. Graduate studies will enhance practical learning, intellectual skills, and career skills beyond the undergraduate program. The University meets the academic, social, and spiritual needs of its students by affording personal attention in a caring context, providing structured and extracurricular opportunities which facilitate positive learning and life experiences, furnishing diverse programs maintained in appropriately appointed physical facilities, promoting and supporting the ideal of responsibility to self and others, and employing a qualified and diverse faculty and staff who are committed to the mission of the institution.
