Mission-Focused Learning

Definition

The Mission-focused Learning (MFL) environment fosters the highest commitment to analytical and critical thinking, advocates the highest ethical and professional standards of practice, values the creation of new knowledge, and the faithful transmission of best practices within professional and scientific disciplines. It provides a learner-centered educational environment that facilitates the absorption of knowledge and perfection of skills while blending evidence-based decision-making with transformative learning events ("teachable moments"). It develops a culture of service, while encouraging the pursuit of wisdom through the example of Jesus Christ who lived to bring hope, healing, and happiness to mankind.
