God, Education, and Freedom
It is no secret that today’s higher education institutions face challenging times.
In recent years, we've witnessed an increase in troubling problems with higher education. Millions of Americans aren't finishing their college degrees, and those who do lack the critical thinking, problem-solving and writing skills to succeed in today's workforce.
The founders of John Melvin University recognized 3 major problems with higher education and opportunities for students.
Lack of Insight: Families are picking colleges without understanding exactly what they are getting in return for their educational investment. Many universities are focused more on recruiting to increase enrollment without focusing on the quality instruction necessary to ensure the successful advancement of the graduates.
Lack of Opportunities: Due to current college athletes receiving an extra year of eligibility as well as the passing of the One-Time transfer rule, there are now limited opportunities for high school student-athletes.
Lack of Christian Influence: The lack of Christian inclusion and the increased push of political opinions by instructors are destroying the ethics of higher education.
The good news is that John Melvin University understands what is happening on campuses and beyond and are ready to meet the challenges it faces. Its view is a positive one in that these challenges are amazing opportunities to elevate JMU to a new normal where creativity and innovation lead the way to limitless possibilities.
