Vision for Our Students

Corban’s goal is to equip men and women who will bring CHARACTER to their communities and COMPETENCE to their careers, all to the glory of CHRIST.

At Corban, who our students become is just as important as what they choose to do. One of our greatest goals for students is that they would grow in godly character. Corban is committed to integrating God’s Word into every major, program, and course, so that students are trained to view their vocation through the lens of a biblical worldview and approach their careers with a biblical sense of ethics, integrity, and decision-making.

In addition to character, we strive to equip our students with competence. Hands-on experiences, internships, global opportunities, and a commitment to integrating technology and innovation into every program serve to prepare students for success in their chosen careers. We want our students to graduate with the skills and experiences necessary to succeed in the workplace and demonstrate competence as servant-leaders in their careers, families, and churches.

Finally, our vision for all students is that they would grow in Christ. Student programs such as Chapel, REACH (community service), mentoring by staff and faculty, and residence life each serve to create an environment for students to be sharpened and challenged in their faith. Every staff and faculty member is a professed believer in Jesus Christ, so that students are not only learning Christian principles but are encouraged to live them out in a unique Christian community. Our hope is that by the time our students graduate, Christ would be the foundation for every aspect of their lives.
