Statement of Direction

I believe that God created all things and in him I live and move and have my being (Acts 17:28). Therefore, to succeed in this life, I must put God First, in the middle and in the end of all my activities and life as a member of the CUIB family.

I believe that the way forward for humanity is to develop a culture of sharing versus that of having.

Therefore, I believe in the Economy of Communion Philosophy. I believe that God endowed man and woman with intelligence and freedom to share in his work of creation. Therefore, I believe that in order to be co-creator in a responsible way, I must work hard to be true entrepreneur, a job creator.

I believe that this is a practical world and that I can count only on what I earn. Therefore, I believe in work and hard work.

I believe in education, which gives me the knowledge to work wisely and trains my mind and my hands to work skillfully.

I believe in honesty and truthfulness, without which I cannot win the respect and confidence of my fellow men and women.

I believe in a sound mind, in a sound body and a spirit that is not afraid, and in physical education that develop these qualities.

I believe in obedience to law because it protects the rights of all. Therefore, I must foster the two main virtues of an entrepreneur-Love and Justice.

I believe in the human touch, which cultivates sympathy with my fellow men and women and mutual helpfulness that brings happiness for all.

I believe in my Country, because it is my own home, and that I can best serve that country by “acting justly, loving tenderly, and walking humbly with my God.” (Micah 6:8).

And because CUIB men and women believe in these things, I believe in CUIB and love it.

The CUIB statement of direction articulates the core values and beliefs of the University. At the Convocation Ceremony, freshmen and women make a commitment to abide by these core beliefs, values and convictions. It is also recited before important meetings, events and activities organized by the university.
