ICU was founded with a mission to pursue truth, defend academic freedom and enrich inner freedom. In order to attain the best results in the pursuit and conveyance of truth, it is essential to maintain the highest academic standards and the highest levels of academic freedom. We have that responsibility to defend our academic community from external constraint and coercion so that we can reach our lofty goal.
The communication of knowledge is of special concern to all institutions of higher education. We are committed to educating and nurturing individuals who will integrate knowledge.
We expect our students to acquire the ability to think, critique and make reasonable judgments as individuals serving truth and freedom, against any external restraint and coercion. It is our mission to send forth graduates who will fulfill their responsibilities based upon their newfound knowledge and skills.
