What is Character?

"Everyone tries to define this thing called 'Character'. It's not hard. Character is doing what's right when nobody's looking. Most people say that it is the intellect which makes a great scientist. They are wrong: it is Character." ~Albert Einstein

One of the biggest reasons Accelerate University exists is to create the opportunities to develop men and women of character! Through completing a degree in the AU program, students are challenged in several areas and often grown in character, self-discipline and personal motivation. AU students also often experience a widening of their perspective and vision for who they can become and what they can do with their lives.

In our culture, nation and world today, we need men and women of Character, Competence and deep Committment! We need leaders who will do "what's right when nobody's looking"!

That's our goal. We want to partner with families, men and women, students, businesses to raise up men and women of strong character, who will be leaders, will sacrifice for the good of others and will do what is right, seeking the things that Really Count (looking beyond personal fulfillment)!

Keep up the good work AU students! You are working on more than college courses...you are planting today who will will become tomorrow. Today you have the opportunity to grow in becoming a person of "Character"!
