dafabet888黄金版登陆 is an R1 Institution

亲爱的dafabet888黄金版登陆的家庭:

I am overjoyed to share with you some wonderful news we learned this morning. We have received notification from the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education that dafabet手机版 has achieved 研究1 状态, joining the nation’s top research institutions as a doctoral university with very high research activity and as a preeminent Christian research university.

Our R1 aspirations have represented an incredible opportunity – one given to us by God – to do what very few, 如果有任何, universities have achieved: maintaining our foundational Christian mission while reaching R1 状态 as a top-tier research university.

Through the dedicated work of our faculty and staff and our academic and research leadership, we have made remarkable progress since 2018 on our 照亮 战略计划, which provided the framework to build on dafabet888黄金版登陆’s historic strengths and strategically invest in new areas of research and service. Through top-tier research, scholarship and external funding support, R1 universities – that now include dafabet手机版 – bring their voice to bear in addressing our world’s most significant challenges. And as a Christian research university, dafabet888黄金版登陆 infuses the quest for solutions, 在最高层次上, with the University’s distinct Christian voice and mission.

As we have traversed this journey to R1, our commitment to excellence university-wide has grown even stronger. That commitment remains evident in our transformational undergraduate education, in providing impactful services to students that support them academically, 精神上, personally and in their future careers, and in achieving 在最高层次上 of human performance in the arts and athletics as we prepare students for worldwide leadership and service.

I want to personally thank our 评议委员会, who supported dafabet888黄金版登陆’s institutional aspirations with the approval of 照亮 four years ago and for their most recent reaffirmation of our R1 goals through 照亮前进 2022 - 27. I am also deeply appreciative of the ongoing support of the dafabet888黄金版登陆 Family through our 给光运动 on behalf of our faculty, students and campus overall.

Today is not the end of our journey, but rather a significant step in a trajectory in which we will continue to elevate the quality and impact of our educational and research endeavors. Today, let us give thanks to God and join together to celebrate this monumental achievement.

谢谢你!
