  1. Diverse institution with an eye to leadership development and social justice. Students are taught to critically weigh history/tradition with contemporary need/responsibility to faith and social justice. Broad faculty ranging in theological diversity. Large campus setting with small town college feel. Wonderful library and a commitment to research including building faculty relations among different institutions. Committed Board of Trustees. Green campus with renovated residential and communal buildings. You enter a one, and leave a many.
