Head, Heart & Hand

Education at John Brown University has never been merely academic. John Brown Sr., founder and first president of the institution, was committed to a well-rounded philosophy of studies that focused on the holistic development of students.

"Emphasis should be placed equally on the head, heart and hands," Brown said. "If we neglect any of these in our teaching, the result will be an unbalanced person."


John Brown Sr.'s goal from the start was to provide the university he founded with a solid academic core, and throughout his lifetime, he founded multiple schools with this philosophy. Thousands of alumni have been enriched with a quality education at JBU because of John Brown Sr.'s dedication.


In addition to having academic and vocational opportunities, John Brown Sr. wanted students to be exposed to the Bible for a complete educational experience. With the rich heritage of Brown's faith, the University whose motto is "Christ Over All" continues to stand firm in the ways of the God whom Brown was committed to serving.


Good, hard work is essential and healthy, Brown believed; thus he wanted his institution to stand apart from ones that thought good education avoid labor. Majors from biology to business to broadcasting place great emphasis on the practical, realistically preparing students today to meet the challenges of tomorrow's workforce.
