While upholding the importance of the highest academic standards, the uniqueness of Babcock University is to be found in the pursuance of the Seventh-day Adventist philosophy of education (full text is given below) that emphasizes the harmonious development of the academic, physical, psycho-social and spiritual potential of students.  The reason for the existence of a Church-operated institution must be sought in that uniqueness - a specificity of utmost excellence in the achievement of pre-set high morality-based spiritually powered goals.  Its value must be judged by the contribution it makes directly through its community of scholars toward the fulfillment of the mission of its sponsoring organization.  The pluralism of the larger society, and solutions offered to human problems by means not appropriate to totally secular agencies.
