Mission Statement

At Yeshiva University- our mission is to bring wisdom to life through all that we teach- by all that we do and for all those we serve. 1) We bring wisdom to life by combining the finest- contemporary academic education with the timeless teachings of Torah. It is YU’s unique dual curriculum- that teaches knowledge enlightened by values- that helps our students gain the wisdom to make their lives both a secular and spiritual success. 2) YU brings wisdom to life by not only teaching the knowledge and skills to be highly accomplished scholars and professionals- but by teaching the ethical and moral values that will make them truly admirable people. It is our dual emphasis on professional excellence and personal ethics that give our graduate students the wisdom to succeed in both their professions and their lives. 3) YU helps our professors bring their own wisdom to life by providing the encouragement- resources and intellectual freedom to pursue their own academic ideals. And they- in turn- share their wisdom with our students- our society and the world at large. 4) To bring wisdom to life is YU’s service to humanity and a worthy mission shared in spirit and practice by all associated with the University. 5) Our mission to bring wisdom to life will foster greater understanding and appreciation of the heritage- traditions and values we all hold so dear. 6) Our students learn and go forth- as both educated and ethical people- to share their own special talents and wisdom with society. Our faculty’s research- academic work and scholarly writings help bring wisdom to many of the most pressing social- political- medical- legal and human rights issues facing the world today. YU serves as a platform to bring YU’s collective wisdom to the world through our community outreach- publications- seminars and broad range of academic programs. At YU- teaching the knowledge and values that bring wisdom to life is not only our mission- it is our proud tradition.
