As one of the nation’s top academies and among the most diverse global communities, it is an aesthetically beautiful and highly strategic space.  The university’s description of itself is: “a medium-sized, independent university located in the nation’s center”.  This seemingly modest definition is eclipsed by its evident XL-sized impact, intentional partnerships, and its worldwide influence.  The genius of this campus begins with its mission statement.

Mission Statement of WUSTL

“Washington University’s mission is to discover and disseminate knowledge, and protect the freedom of inquiry through research, teaching, and learning.”

Washington University creates an environment to encourage and support an ethos of wide-ranging exploration...to enhance the lives and livelihoods of students, the people of the greater St. Louis community, the country, and the world.

In upholding the Mission Statement, RUF would love to help Wash U be Wash U by lending the biblical voice and perspective in the conversations for the pursuit knowledge and inquiry.  We believe the Bible and the faith community has much to contribute in the categories the university regards.  To this end, RUF seeks to be an enriching member of the Wash U community.
