Shaped by Scripture. Sent to Serve.
By equipping students to know and love Scripture, Criswell prepares graduates as servants ready to cultivate change, solve problems, make peace, and move mountains.
As a college we created what we call a Graduate Profile, which is a description of a graduate after they have been shaped and developed by the Criswell community. This community involves students, staff, faculty, board members, alumni, and friends. We know we need each person with their unique perspective to make us the kind of Christian community we should be.
Graduate Profile: Graduates of Criswell embody our core values as…
- Ambassadors who communicate effectively across various platforms and contexts.
- Cultivators who seek to understand diverse populations and develop purposeful relationships.
- Peacemakers who pursue truth and righteousness through mercy and reconciliation.
- Problem-solvers who think critically, creatively, and collaboratively.
- Professionals who demonstrate competence in their field of study and intentionality in their vocation.
