Return to: Student Handbook 2019-2020
On behalf of dedicated administrators, faculty and staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Andrews University. As an amazing child of God, you will greatly enrich our campus community.
By selecting Andrews, you have chosen to be part of a campus culture that is shaped by the Christian faith and values of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Whether or not you share our particular faith perspective, we invite you to live within the values that make Andrews a welcoming and supportive environment for all who seek a faith-based education.
Andrews University is more than brick and mortar—it’s a community. Whether you are a graduate student or an undergraduate student, we want Andrews University to feel like home. As a residential university, many students live on campus in one of our residence halls or University apartments.
Students learn not only in the classroom but through a wide variety of out-of-class faith and learning opportunities—on campus, in the community and around the world. Andrews University offers a transformative educational experience designed to motivate you to reach your God-given potential in all aspects of your life—body, mind and spirit—and to inspire you to serve others.
In this “Handbook,” you will find the Community Values and Code of Student Conduct which each student agrees to respect. I also personally call you to embrace four great cares. (1) Care for yourself as a unique creation of God. (2) Care for each other, for all are precious in His sight. (3) Care for the University—its mission, values and property. (4) And, most importantly, care for your Creator, in whom we live and have our being.
We are steadfast in our support of you and your journey at Andrews University as together we “Seek Knowledge, Affirm Faith and Change the World.”
