“Valley View University, a Seventh-day Adventist institution, emphasizes academic, spiritual, vocational, and technological excellence for service to God and humanity.”

Valley View University is committed to the spiritual, physical, mental, and social development of qualified students who seek both practical and intellectual preparation for a life of service to their communities.

The Christian writer, Ellen G. White, counseled that:

“Instead of educated weaklings, institutions of learning may send forth men strong to think and to act, men who are masters and not slaves of circumstances, men who possess breadth of mind, clearness of thought, and the courage of their convictions” (Education, p. 18).

Following this counsel, VVU seeks to encourage each student to develop desirable characteristics such as integrity, initiative, perseverance, adaptability, and trust in God.

The educational philosophy of Valley View University embraces the principle that every individual has the responsibility of serving others.

For this reason, the University seeks to expand the graduate’s options for employment by providing opportunities for students to develop vocational skills which can help them to be of service in a wide field of human endeavor.

Furthermore, the University does not measure a graduate’s success in terms of material gain only, but also in terms of one’s capacity to find a meaningful avenue of service.
