Everyone is in the process of becoming: either becoming a force of goodness, provision, and hope, or becoming something less than their potential.

If, indeed, everyone is becoming something, then the purpose of Christ-centered higher education is to help students become what they are meant to be.

Since 1919, John Brown University has been preparing traditional undergraduate students for careers of real significance through its head, heart, and hand philosophy. Our graduates have become teachers, engineers, business leaders, missionaries, journalists, scientists, filmmakers, and much more.

In addition, for the last 20 years, working adults have achieved the goal of finishing their college studies or obtaining an advanced degree through JBU’s degree completion and graduate programs.

But a college education should offer more than a foundation to simply excel in the professional world. That is why the faculty and staff at John Brown University are committed as a community to our mission: to help students become someone who uses their talents to honor God and serve others.

Because of this, JBU students become more than just masters in their profession and commanders of their careers. They become servants to the needy, champions of justice, advocates for truth, leaders for change, and followers of Christ. These are things worthy of becoming.
