Inseparably, the mission of the College is to foster a Christ-centred and diverse learning community that prepares our students for service in an ever-changing world.”

Newbold College is opening its heart and confesses what drives the College forward and what kind of people it wishes to prepare for service. I like the warm, personal tone used to identify the College as a place where young people are induced into the secrets and blessings of Seventh-day Adventist faith, life and service. The Board fully supports this exciting direction for Newbold College.”
