Paine College Mission Statement
Paine College Mission Statement is reflective of the nature and purpose of the institution as a church-related liberal arts institution providing a high caliber education. The Mission Statement reflects the founding goals of the college and it is comprehensive in establishing the institution as grounded in Methodism and providing a basis for the institution's operational foci. The statement is current as it is periodically reviewed, evaluated and approved by the governing body with appropriate input from its various constituencies. The Mission also firmly ties the College to its Biblical Foundation Statement.
Paine College is a private institution steeped in the tenets of Methodism that provides a liberal arts education of the highest quality. The College emphasizes academic excellence, ethical and spiritual values, social responsibility, and personal development to prepare spiritually-centered men and women for positions of leadership and service.
Over the next five years, Paine College shall build on its achievements and legacy to be regionally recognized as a premier liberal arts institution of higher education.
