Vision and Values

 

Students in the Green Courtyard - Whitley Residential CollegeThe mission of Whitley College is to equip men and women for leadership and service in the church and society. We have adopted the tag line: ‘Equipping leaders for a different world’.

Our vision is for each person to make a contribution, within the College and in their life beyond university studies, towards a different world—and whilst on this journey, form lasting friendships and make the most of every opportunity.

The Baptist heritage of Whitley College stresses the integrity and freedom of each person, a respect for all and a challenge to all to contribute to a just, peaceful society. Baptist faith emphasises a personal response to God, as we understand the expression of God in Jesus Christ and in the witness of the Bible. While Baptists hold to this personal faith, they also uphold the religious freedom of all and seek to a respectful relationship with people of all faiths and of none.

The community life of Whitley College encourages personal growth, accountability and involvement, plus a celebration and enjoyment of the gifts and opportunities we share in such beautiful surroundings.
