We understand that students are engaged in a spiritual journey, at different speeds and toward different ends. Because we are committed to spiritual values and maturity in faith, William Jewell offers students many opportunities to explore and express faith in ways unique to their own needs and individual interests. Jewell welcomes students of all faiths. We are both proud of our heritage and comfortable with a generous Christian world view for the future.

At William Jewell College…

  • We value the promise of community to shape us, enriched by our similarities and differences.
  • We value engaging the world.
  • Our vision includes raising and engaging significant questions in pursuit of knowledge and wisdom; and grappling with the meaning and implications of both Christian faith and other perspectives through disciplined and intimate conversations.
  • We emphasize the “lived” Christianity that Jesus urged of his followers. The ultimate end toward which we work is social justice and peace.
  • We value loving-kindness; we value community; we value extending our hands to others; we value justice; we value excellence in all we undertake. William Jewell College is clearly and strongly Christian in the most positive and inclusive sense of that term.
