A Christ-centered university
Hannibal-LaGrange University has a motto, “Knowledge for Service.” We believe we should prepare you for your future with knowledge that will equip you to develop your passion and impact the world around you. You will engage ideas, people, and your education from a distinctively Christian perspective across all areas of study. Growth in our faith in Jesus is at the center of everything we do.
We believe these four years are about you and your success, which is why our students thrive. You want an education that goes deeper than simply memorizing facts and information. We believe that the 21st century world needs people who can think critically. We focus on helping you develop problem solving, communication, and leadership skills. We want to teach you how to think not what to think.
We believe in giving students individual attention through a small environment with access to world. You want opportunities to serve and study that aren’t limited to the campus that you live on. We are continuously developing partnerships and opportunities for you to serve through mission opportunities and study abroad. For example, each year our students have the opportunity to go to Israel. We are intentionally small with big opportunities.
We believe Jesus gave us the ultimate example of service to others. You want to do more with your life than simply work. We want to foster that life of service. We will help you prepare for career effectiveness but will promote a life of service through whatever career you choose.
