Colorado Christian University is very different from the typical American university. We hold tightly to traditional values and high academic standards. We strive to impact our culture in support of traditional family values, sanctity of life, compassion for the poor, biblical view of human nature, limited government, personal freedom, and other such causes that preserve and promote high moral and ethical standards.
In the classroom students are learning to think for themselves, to ponder and interact with today's ideas and theories. They are learning how biblical principles can make an impact now. They are becoming seekers and messengers of truth. Professors are challenging students to integrate their faith into their chosen discipline, while helping them gain knowledge and develop skills that will prepare them to be successful in their careers.
