Core Values

Our Guiding Principles

North Greenville University took a look back at its storied 125-year history and what it can be in its future. A set of fundamental beliefs or core values have been defined that will be the guiding principles to dictate behavior and keep the school on the right path. Those values are: Christ-Centered, Biblically Faithful, Academically Excellent, and Mission-Focused.

These core values will combine to equip transformational leaders for church and society and give us a solid foundation for our work. More than anything they help us understand that we are a part of something significant.
