Our Philosophy

George Fox University's education programs prepare graduates to think critically, transform practice and promote justice.

  • Think Critically: Use evidence to question how things are done and imagine new possibilities
  • Transform Practice: Rethink how you teach to help change the system, improve student outcomes, and bring hope
  • Promote Justice: Advocate for the needs of all students; teach and model love and care for others
