Creation: A Matter of Science or Faith?

October 01, 2009 | John McVay

"Walla Walla University is founded on Christian teaching and values as understood and appreciated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church."

That first sentence in our Philosophy of Education Statement emphasizes our privilege and responsibility for providing students with wisdom that transcends academic achievement.

Our mission isn't just a statement that exists on paper — it is a daily commitment from faculty and staff as we prepare students for faith-filled lives of service to our Creator. We are a faith community firmly rooted in Scripture, which serves as both the beginning of and conclusion for a thorough, balanced and rigorous education in all areas of study.

As you'll read in Dr. Bob Cushman's reflections on faith and science, we are indeed blessed with a "sacred trust." Thank you for praying for all of us in this important work.
