The University of the Southern Caribbean is one of the region’s oldest academic institutions and boasts of a unique heritage that dates back to 1927.

Core Values

  • Love – We love God and others wholeheartedly, just like Jesus loved us.
  • Compassion – We are caring and kind as we help and serve each other. Like the Good Samaritan, we go beyond the call of duty.
  • Integrity – We think and do what is right at all times, no matter the consequences.
  • Honesty – We are honest with ourselves and others. We speak the truth and do what is right
  • Excellence – We strive to surpass ordinary standards and exceed expectations.
  • Competency – We strive for excellence; applying our skills and expertise to every task we do.
  • Justice – We are fair to everyone and are reasonable in our treatment of others.
  • Purity – Our words, thoughts, and actions are moral, admirable and honourable.
  • Self-Control – We think before acting and make positive choices. We aren’t overly proud. We’re modest, showing respect for ourselves and others.

Educational Objectives

Emanating from the University’s mission and philosophy is a series of objectives to guide the education of its students.

  • To develop and maintain a spiritual, academic, social, and physical environment in which competent workers are trained for service to God and humanity.
  • To provide an instructional programme that leads students to accept God as the source of all truth, and the Bible as an expression of His divine plan of salvation.
  • To challenge students to enlarge their world view as they integrate religion, culture, and scholarship.
  • To prepare students to deal with the complex problems and issues of contemporary society.
  • To encourage the acquisition of advanced knowledge and skills, which are necessary for professional growth.
  • To implement a meaningful philosophy of life, which encompasses an understanding of (a): the nature of God (b): the nature of man, and (c): the nature of reality.

Mission

The University of the Southern Caribbean seeks to transform ordinary people into extraordinary servants of God to humanity through a holistic tertiary educational experience.

Vision

A Seventh-day Adventist University fully reflecting the character of God through spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and cultural development.
