Students at Graceland want to make a positive impact in the world and our interdisciplinary curriculum empowers them to do that. In a community where everyone belongs, we support each other’s unique passions and create meaning in our daily interactions.
Make it Mean Something
Something I've noticed about my friends, my peers, and the average student here at Graceland is that they want to make an impact in their own communities, and they want to be world changers. And usually their majors are connected to that even if it's not a social change major, they have the opportunity to be a business major, or a nursing major or a communications major, and then connect those majors to different interdisciplinary studies we have here like sustainability or social change. And I think that's the reason I came here to Graceland in the first place is so I can have such a well rounded curriculum that makes me such a strong advocate.
When I came here, majoring in theater, and I minored in economics, it was extremely easy to minor in it. The economics minor helps me into knowing business lingo. And because of that, I realized I wanted to not just depend on being an artist, but also make passive income. So my wife and I, we started a real estate company.
So we really do attempt to live out the principle that all are welcome here. The sponsoring church has kind of endowed the university with its values, which has to do with the worth of all persons with the blessings of community, but but also with the understanding that every person brings with them background and experiences that are just extremely valuable. This is a place where everyone is welcome to come and to sort out the questions of life.
