The Right Statement
Statement of Mission and Vision
As an ecumenical and interreligious institution, Claremont Lincoln University seeks to instill students with the ethical integrity, religious intelligence, and intercultural understanding necessary to become effective in thought and action as leaders in the increasingly diverse, multireligious world of the 21st century.
Claremont Lincoln University has the vision of becoming a leading interreligious university where scholars and practitioners of the world’s religions can come together, learning and practicing how to treat others as they would like to be treated. This will enable religious organizations, leaders, and individuals, regardless of their own religious commitment or perspective on faith, to work collectively to bring about harmony and understanding at all levels—individual, organizational, and governmental.
With a free and liberating spirit, Claremont Lincoln University nurtures a diverse international community that passionately pursues intellectual rigor, vocational formation, and responsible social engagement. We commit ourselves to think deeply, act ethically, embrace diversity, work for justice and peace, and care for the earth, its people, and its resources so that all life may flourish.
