The Presbyterian Church is anchored in the Reformed tradition, which is marked by historical, theological, and institutional commitments to education for the common good and the dignity of all people. Queens’ ties to the Presbyterian Church (USA) were established in 1857. This tradition has embedded core values such as service, intellectual curiosity, and commitment to the common good in Queens’ DNA.

The Queens community promotes civic good by fostering knowledge and nurturing relationships among people of different religious and philosophical world views. This pluralistic approach goes beyond mere tolerance to promote conversation and collaboration across differences, and it is at the heart of the transformative educational experience Queens provides. By understanding others on their own terms, we appreciate both our common values and our distinctive convictions.

Pluralism enables us to value one another, to work together, and to disagree well. This philosophy is also reflected in the McColl School of Business’s 3 Cs of Leadership – Competence, Character, and Commitment to Community. We push students to gain an understanding of themselves and their potential to impact the community by being open to different perspectives, embracing diversity, finding commonalities, and collaborating to accomplish goals for the common good.

We are proud of our Presbyterian heritage, which is expressed in our motto, “Not to be served, but to serve,” but we do not incorporate specific beliefs or non-beliefs in our courses. As a university, Queens supports religious and spiritual diversity.

Queens’ Presbyterian roots as expressed by the university’s motto of “Not to be served, but to serve,” is reaffirmed through the Knight School of Communication’s service activities such as the Digital Charlotte project. Digital Charlotte serves the Charlotte community through digital/media literacy training and initiatives to bridge the digital divide. Students have the opportunity to participate in digital/media literacy initiatives.

It is not incorporated specifically, at this time, but we certainly embed the mission and honor code of the university in all programs and in program documents. In terms of religious pluralism, we are in the process over the next one or two years of incorporating specific religious pluralism activities and discussions into our program.

When comparing federal loans and private loans, the key difference is that federal loans are funded by the U.S. government and private loans are provided by banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions. Each has its own student loan eligibility criteria, application process, and terms and conditions. Whether you choose federally funded student loans or private student loans, you have to pay back the money you borrow, plus interest—whether you graduate or not. Student loans are legal agreements, so be sure you understand what you’re signing. If something isn’t clear, ask your school counselor or lender for help.
