STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

Brewton-Parker College offers an undergraduate education that is committed to academic excellence, grounded in the liberal arts tradition, and informed by the Christian faith. The College's heritage as a Georgia Baptist institution produces a concern for individuals that motivates our community to nurture and develop the whole student in a caring, Christian environment.  Faculty members serve as teacher-scholars promoting intellectual inquiry that develops the mind and spirit. Students study the traditional liberal arts and sciences, and selected professional and pre-professional programs, at the campus in Mount Vernon and designated external locations. Activities both inside and outside the classroom afford students opportunities for intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual growth that prepare them for meaningful service to their local, regional, and global communities.

 

EXTERNAL PROGRAMS MISSION

The Division of External Programs seeks to help the College meet its mission through the provision of an equally effective academic program at sites that are distant to the Mount Vernon campus. The Division of External Programs provides a community of intellectual inquiry and learning under Christian sponsorship to students unable to commute to the Mount Vernon Campus for such an educational experience. Furthermore, the Division of External Programs develops student maturation in knowledge, values and citizenship through baccalaureate degrees and the Associate of Arts degree, and through the provision of counseling and career guidance as well as to assist students to learn.

 

EXTERNAL PROGRAM PHILOSOPHY

The External Programs is a community service program intended to reach into the surrounding counties by delivering accredited college instruction to constituents unable to be serviced by Brewton-Parker's Mount Vernon campus because of work, distance, or other life situations.

VISION STATEMENT

Brewton-Parker College will be a distinctive community of learners committed to upholding strong academic standards where liberal arts education and every area of the college are informed by the Christian faith in a nurturing Christian environment.
