Christopher Newport University

At Christopher Newport University we care about minds and hearts. Our primary purpose is to form good citizens and leaders. We believe real success is a life well lived. We want our students to choose to live lives of meaning and consequence and purpose. We call that a life of significance.

Because we care about minds, our curriculum is based on the liberal arts and sciences. We emphasize the study of leadership and have developed a nationally respected President’s Leadership Program. Our core curriculum is rigorous, cited by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni as the strongest core curriculum of any public college or university in America.

Because we care about hearts, our students perform thousands of hours of community service. We built a chapel and celebrate our speaking tradition and honor code.

We want our students to lead, serve, engage and set the world on fire. That’s what makes Christopher Newport special.
