Ministry Description
The Mission of Shorter Universtiy is to provide quality higher education, enabling and encouraging student commitment to active life-long learning, personal spiritual values, responsible citizenship, and community and societal leadership in a global context. The University seeks to accomplish this Mission through quality undergraduate liberal arts programs, specialized professional programs, and select graduate programs. Geographically distant locations provide educational opportunities to individuals who are unable to attend classes in a traditional setting. The Universtiy affirms a commitment to the Christian faith and strives to integrate Christian values within a nurturing community in its whole process of education.

Gifts to the Shorter Fund, no matter the amount, go directly to current student scholarships, faculty support and academic improvements. The Shorter Fund enhances teaching, learning and living at Shorter. This means your dollars make possible additional student scholarships, campus and academic program improvements and faculty support. All of these things enhance the Shorter experience.
