_______________________________________________________________________

Statement of Purpose

Charleston Southern University is an independent comprehensive university affiliated with the South Carolina Baptist Convention. This suburban coeducational institution with liberal arts and professional curricula offers degrees at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The university was founded upon the principle that students should have an opportunity for a quality education under the guidance of Christian faculty. The university promotes academic excellence in a Christian environment.

The university aims continuously to increase the academic quality of its students. Students currently are drawn primarily from the Southeastern region of the United States and pursue a broad variety of careers in the arts and sciences, as well as business, education and nursing.

The South Carolina Baptist Convention founded the institution in 1964 as the Baptist College at Charleston. The campus is located 16 miles from the city of Charleston within the city limits of North Charleston. The institution changed its name to Charleston Southern University in 1990 to reflect the offering of graduate programs.


Charleston Southern University forthrightly avers the validity and applicability of Christian truth and values to public, private, individual and corporate activities. Thus, the University seeks to employ only employees who have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord; who are committed to the Christian faith; whose faith is reflected in Christian witness through their employment, and their interaction with students, colleagues, and the general public; who will maintain active membership in a local Christian church; and who will be committed to the integration of faith and learning.


Founding Principle: Matthew 28:19-20
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

Mission: Promoting Academic Excellence in a Christian Environment

Vision: To be a Christian university nationally recognized for the integration of faith in learning, leading, and serving

  • Learning: 2 Corinthians 10:5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
  • Leading: Colossians 3:17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
  • Serving: Ephesians 2:10 For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.


Biblical Core Values
Scripture
II Timothy 3:16
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” The Bible is the inerrant and infallible record of God's revelation to humanity, and it is the only sufficient source of appeal on matters relating to the Christian faith.

God
Genesis 1:1
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.”John 1:3 “All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.” There is one and only one living true God. The historical account of Genesis decrees that He is the personal and direct Creator of all that exists, including the first human beings Adam and Eve. To Him we owe the highest love, reverence, and obedience.

Jesus Christ
John 14:6
“Jesus said unto them, `I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me.'” God made provision through Christ for the redemption of sinful humanity by His substitutionary atonement on the cross, and He alone is sufficient as Savior.

Salvation
John 3:16
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Salvation involves God's gracious redemption of individuals and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Savior by repentance and faith.

Life of the Believer
Romans 12:2
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Christians are to be consistent with Scripture in their character and conduct.

Diversity

Genesis 1:27 “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” Because all people are made in God’s divine image, they possess full dignity and are worthy of respect. Matthew 22:39 “‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’” Jesus’ command for us to love others as ourselves extends to all people. Revelation 7:9 “After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb . . .” Charleston Southern University defines diversity as people groups varying in ethnic makeup, cultural background, age, language, educational and professional experience, ability, veteran and/or socioeconomic status. Our commitment to diversity is biblically informed; therefore, the university engages and supports diversity related-matters as they are clearly defined in Scripture.

Human Sexuality

Matthew 19:4-5 “ . . . [God] . . . made them at the beginning ‘male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’[.]” Sexuality is one of the ways the marriage covenant between a husband and a wife is sealed and expressed. Marriage is God’s unique gift to reveal the union between Christ and His church and to provide for the man and the woman in marriage the framework for intimate companionship, the channel of sexual expression according to biblical standards and the means for the procreation of the human race. All forms of sexual intimacy that occur outside the covenant of heterosexual marriage, even when consensual, are distortions of the holiness and beauty God intended for it. The promotion or practice of a homosexual lifestyle (including same-sex dating behaviors) is also contrary to the university’s core values. The promotion of transgenderism fails to uphold the university’s core values.

Education:

Deuteronomy 6:6-7a “ . . . these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children . . .” Matthew 28:19-20 “ . . . make disciples of all the nations . . . teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you . . .” Christianity is the faith of enlightenment and intelligence . . . All sound learning is, therefore, a part of our Christian heritage. The new birth opens all human faculties and creates a thirst for knowledge. Moreover, the cause of education in the Kingdom of Christ is co-ordinate with the causes of missions and general benevolence, and should receive along with these the liberal support of the churches. An adequate system of Christian education is necessary to a complete spiritual program for Christ's people.

Evangelism and Missions
Acts 1:8
“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” It is the privilege and duty of every Christian to share the Gospel of Christ personally and by all other methods in harmony with the Gospel.
