Things to Remember
Philosophy of USC
University of the Southern Caribbean espouses the philosophy of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. It teaches that true education is the harmonious development of the head, the heart, and the hand.
Excellence in teaching, scholarship, research activities, educational innovations, and dedication to the principles of Christian education rank high in the value system of the University. The University views truth as coming from God, as an expression of the nature of God, and the Bible, as a divine frame of reference, which encompasses all truth.
For the University, the integration of faith with learning and culture is central to the social, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual development of students. It supports the concept of equal educational opportunities without regard to race, sex, religion, ethnicity, or place of residence.
University of the Southern Caribbean is predominantly a regional institution, though there are students from as many as 30 countries. It seeks to preserve the Christian heritage, and at the same time, its graduates, following in the footsteps of Christ, seek to ameliorate the society. The University seeks to instil in students that witnessing for Christ is their highest goal.
The University’s Motto, “Beyond Excellence,” conveys the emphasis on developing a well rounded USC individual, who will not only portray excellence in academia, but also the excellence to which mankind is called, as stated in Matthew 5:48: “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect.”
The University of the Southern Caribbean seeks to transform ordinary people into extraordinary servants of God to humanity through a holistic tertiary educational experience.
A Seventh-day Adventist University fully reflecting the character of God through spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and cultural development.
