Description

It has been argued that a Seventh-day Adventist institution of higher education deserves to exist only when it is both Christian and Adventist. Furthermore, any Adventist institution that is not distinctly Adventist may be seen as a redundancy and thus unnecessary in today’s educational landscape. With the perceived diminishing support for Adventist education, there might be a need to make the case for the unique value of an Adventist education in general and an Andrews education in particular.
