Graduate School Student Guide

Student Expectations

The mission of John Brown University is to provide a Christ-centered education that prepares people to honor God and serve others by developing their intellectual, spiritual and professional lives while recognizing the diversity of its students, JBU requests from each student enrolled in the Graduate School a willingness to exhibit a lifestyle in harmony with its mission along with a sympathetic appreciation for its standards. To read the Articles of Faith go to Articles of Faith.

The university standards of conduct have been established to reflect JBU’s distinct Christ-centered community and mission. These standards include obeying legal expectations set out in national, state and local laws as well as spiritual expectations set out in scripture, such as practicing kindness, stewardship and self-control and refraining from dishonesty, occult practices, obscene language, sex outside of marriage and abuse of alcohol and other substances. 

The university reserves the right to address behaviors that hinder the institution’s mission. JBU presents these standards in the hope that they will enable students to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever!” (2 Peter 3:18).
