THE WISE BOOK
It is the purpose of the educational program to develop in each student that mastery of fundamentals, the versatility of mind, motivation for learning, and intellectual discipline and self-reliance that is the best foundation for continuing professional achievement; to provide a liberal as well as professional education so that each student acquires a respect for moral values, a sense of the duties of citizenship, and the basic human understanding and knowledge required for leadership; and thereby to send forth men and women of the highest professional competence, with the breadth of learning and of character to deal constructively with the issues and opportunities of our time.
Research and Scholarship
The University seeks to extend the boundaries of knowledge and the horizons of the human intellect through research and reflection. In so doing, it aims to create an atmosphere of intellectual excitement, a climate of inquiry and innovation in which each student develops a consuming interest in understanding for its own sake.
As a modern university and social institution, AUS recognizes an inherent obligation to serve its students, alumni and alumnae, the professions, the world of scholarship, and society. As part of this obligation, the University seeks to serve the community and the nation directly through its faculty and through the use of its facilities and administrative resources whenever there is a compelling need to which it can respond without impairing its primary function.
The mission of AUS is to offer unparalleled educational opportunities for all and to help individuals gain the wisdom needed to face our world's great challenges and, ultimately, to serve God's will.
AUS has a very specific set of ideas about the standards and conditions necessary for universal access to education. We are committed to fostering the essential conditions that enable all individuals to experience a unique educational adventure which will serve as a path to self knowledge and social transformation.
The humane community of AUS is unified under one welcoming roof, providing the freedom of thought necessary for self realisation and the attainment of wisdom that will enable one to serve the nation, the world, and do God's will.
