MISSION STATEMENTS

       LMU Mission and Purpose
                 Lincoln Memorial University is a values-based learning community dedicated to providing
       educational experiences in the liberal arts and professional studies. The University strives to give
       students a foundation for a more productive life by upholding the principles of Abraham Lincoln's
       life: a dedication to individual liberty, responsibility, and improvement; a respect for citizenship; a
       recognition of the intrinsic value of high moral and ethical standards; and a belief in a personal
       God.
                 The University's curriculum and commitment to quality instruction at every level are based
       on the beliefs that graduates must be able to communicate clearly and effectively in an era of
       rapidly and continuously expanding communication technology, must have an appreciable depth of
       learning in a field of knowledge, must appreciate and understand the various ways by which we
       come to know ourselves and the world around us, and must be able to exercise informed
       judgments.
                 The University believes that one of the major cornerstones of meaningful existence is
       service to humanity. By making educational and research opportunities available to students
       where they live and through various recreational and cultural events open to the community,
       Lincoln Memorial University seeks to advance life in the Cumberland Gap area and throughout the
       region.
