  • General Information
    About High Point University

    High Point University is a private, liberal arts university affiliated with The United Methodist Church and dedicated to the Judeo-Christian principles of inclusiveness and diversity. The mission of High Point University is to provide vital and distinguished undergraduate and graduate programs that enhance both traditional and non-traditional students' powers of inquiry, breadth of knowledge, command of written and spoken language and insight into ethical behavior. This mission is deeply rooted in the liberal arts and reflected in seven overlapping commitments: To foster close communication, both inside and outside the classroom, between motivated students and faculty who are committed to teaching and scholarly activity; To blend imaginatively critical thinking, intellectual inquiry and aesthetic appreciation with a practical need for innovation, skill and knowledge within professional disciplines; To promote the balanced development of students' cognitive, social and physical capacities; To offer an education, grounded in the development of character, personal responsibility and a sense of civic duty that prepares students for leadership, citizenship and service in a diverse global community; To provide the opportunity for exploration of faith and humane values within a Judeo-Christian context; To contribute to the educational and cultural life of the broader community by offering cultural activities of regional and national interest, and by devoting the resources of the University, the professional skills of the faculty and the talents of students to local charities, businesses and other civic groups; To maintain a physical environment, including classrooms, libraries, laboratories and open spaces, that supports the academic success of students and the professional development of faculty. In pursuing each of these commitments, High Point University is guided by the principles of intellectual freedom, academic excellence and ethical rigor, and by the desire to create and enhance an environment conducive to the liberal arts education and professional development of students.
