About Calvin College
Calvin is a school with a big mission: equipping students to be agents of renewal, ready to step into the public square and renew all things for the glory of Christ. We believe that every student has something to offer the world; every student has something that God is calling him or her to do. Calvin’s job is to partner with each student to discover what that is and then help them develop the skills they'll need to gain that success. In order to achieve this, we’ve charted out a strategic plan that’s defined by three words: strengthen, support, and secure.
