Message from the Dean

“At North Greenville University we believe that ‘all truth is God’s truth.’ By which we mean that all truth ultimately comes from God, who is Truth. Because we believe that all fields of knowledge ultimately cohere in Christ, the act of studying any discipline is a spiritual act.”

Dean, College of Humanities and Sciences
