A Christian Environment
Harding provides a Christian environment in which spiritual growth is central. In addition to the promotion of scholarly pursuits, the University endeavors to instill within each student a deeper spiritual quality that, coupled with academic growth, enables the student to build a blessed and useful life.
All members of Harding’s administration and faculty are dedicated to building Christian character and responsibility within each student. Harding University is built with Christ as its chief cornerstone. It provides a setting in which Christian training and participation are encouraged. Attendance at chapel and in Bible classes is required, and many other opportunities for spiritual growth are provided.
Periodic devotionals beside the Kenneth Davis Lily Pool, in the amphitheater and at other locations enable one to become more aware of the wonders of God’s creation. Christian fellowship and worship are stressed in devotionals held in the various residence halls.
