Integrity, Transparency, and Public Disclosure
Sattler College is fully committed to complete integrity and transparency in all its policies and activities. The College is equally committed to disclosing the details of all policies and a full accounting of all activities to the public.
In support of these principles, the College includes clear statements of its formal status and clear links to all policies that govern its operation; that guide the academic work of students and faculty; and that set out clear expectations for all associated with the College.
The College’s policies and activities are guided, first and foremost, by Sattler’s mission and institutional objectives which are listed below:
Sattler College seeks to prepare students to serve Christ, the church and the world. Our mission is to provide classical education that instructs the mind, discipleship that shapes the soul, and inspiration that inflames the heart. Our goal is to enable graduates to heartily say, “For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power, love, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).
We dedicate ourselves in thought, word, and deed to:
· Developing Christian character
· Promoting academic excellence and critical thinking
· Enabling students to master oral and written communication skills
· Cultivating self-initiative, resourcefulness, and determination
· Minimizing or avoiding student debt by managing our fiscal resources well
· Recruiting and retaining a highly diverse, international, and multicultural student body, faculty, and staff
· Maximizing the use of the best technology available for learning and service delivery
· Encouraging students to tackle some of the great problems of our day with respect to poverty, injustice, education, healthcare, sustainable business, Christian discipleship, and world change
The successful and consistent application of the College’s mission and the achievement of its institutional objectives are guided by the College’s Board of Trustees, senior leadership team, faculty and staff.
Sattler College believes that Scripture's command to "love your neighbor as yourself" should govern all interpersonal interactions. Thus the College vigorously rejects all forms of harassment and disrespect, especially to groups and individuals that have historically been vulnerable to discrimination. The College strives to foster a respectful, welcoming environment for all students, faculty, and staff. Moreover, Sattler College believes that diversity among its student body, faculty, and staff makes an invaluable contribution to a student's education.
Thus it is the policy of Sattler College--while reserving its lawful rights where appropriate to promote the historic Christian faith in accordance with its mission and founding precepts--to comply with state and federal laws prohibiting discrimination in admissions, employment and in its educational programs on the basis of a person's race, color, national and ethnic origin, sex, religion, disability, age, marital or parental status, sexual orientation, genetic information or family medical history, or military status.
