For the sake of fulfilling the Prairie College community’s purposes, all faculty, staff and students voluntarily enter into a covenant. We understand this covenant to be a commitment to one another during the time we are involved in the Prairie Community.
The whole Prairie experience, both inside and outside of the classroom, is designed to be an intentional process of learning to love and follow Christ in all of life.
Students are members of a transformational community that requires participation in specific spiritual growth activities such as chapel, Impact Groups, conferences, days of prayer and service to prioritize relationship with God and put faith into action.
All Prairie students participate in Impact Groups. An Impact Group is a biblical small group community that serves as a vital context for developing disciples who are personally impacted by Jesus and who are enabled to, in turn, impact their world for Him.
Within the small group, every student has a place of belonging where basic front line care by the leader (another student), as well as mutual member care, is provided.
Prairie acknowledges and embraces the fact that our students come from wide and varied educational backgrounds. Student Success is available to all students who wish to improve their academic experience, allowing them to achieve greater academic performance and personal fulfillment.
At the College, we desire for students to succeed in life and academics; therefore, we have a Student Success Department that strives to look after the academic needs of the student. When a student struggles academically, he or she can access help via this department. The Student Success Office is open to all students who are in need of academic assistance.
The Student Union is our campus student government body and exists to give a voice to students and to facilitate communication with the school. It also gives students an opportunity to build a community of believers through a variety of events. The Student Union is committed to supporting Prairie’s purpose “to know Christ and make Him known.” Follow Prairie College’s Student Union on Instagram.
Prairie College commits to providing a safe learning environment that supports fair treatment of all members of its community and is conducive to relationships based on biblical teaching, mutual respect, cooperation and understanding. Prairie does not condone behavior that undermines the dignity, self-esteem, or productivity of any student, staff member or faculty member.
All members of the Prairie community have a responsibility to ensure that the human rights of such members are not violated. Such violation shall include the psychological violence of harassment and the physical violence of assault. Any occurrence considered to be a violation of this policy involving community members may properly be considered under this policy, whether it occurs on or off campus or during or beyond school hours.
