To advance the kingdom of Jesus Christ by equipping our graduates with the knowledge, skills and virtues required to pursue vocations in computing or information systems in a competent and socially responsible way, as informed by a reformed Christian world-view
To pursue our vision by building and maintaining the best possible undergraduate programs in computer science and information systems, with an emphasis on service in the areas of education, scholarship, and community
In computer science, we focus on the science and practice of computing, as opposed to the ephemeral details of specific systems, taking care to support one degree program that is accredited by a reputable accreditation organization.
In information systems, we focus on understanding the value of information and on developing leadership skills in the creation, delivery and management of information tools and assets to organizations.
The mission of Campbell University is to graduate students with exemplary academic and professional skills who are prepared for purposeful lives and meaningful service. The University is informed and inspired by its Baptist heritage and three basic theological and biblical presuppositions: learning is appointed and conserved by God as essential to the fulfillment of human destiny; in Christ all things consist and find ultimate unity; and the Kingdom of God in this world is rooted and grounded in Christian community. The University embraces the conviction that there is no conflict between the life of faith and the life of inquiry.

Founded in 1866, Carleton College is a small, private liberal arts college in the historic river town of Northfield, Minnesota. Best known for its academic excellence and warm, welcoming campus community, Carleton offers 37 majors and 15 concentrations in the arts, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences. Carleton College is committed to providing a true liberal arts education, a curriculum that challenges their students to learn broadly and think deeply. The most important thing their students learn is how to learn for a lifetime. Carleton's student body is notoriously difficult to categorize, but if they had to choose just one word to describe them, it would be curious. They're an intellectually insatiable group that approaches learning with enthusiasm, energy, and a uniquely Carleton brand of playfulness. Broad-ranging interests are common, and friendships seem to cross all traditional boundaries.
