At DBU, we desire to glorify God above all else as we prepare individuals to impact the world for the sake of the Kingdom. Excellence in service to God and humanity is mandated by the essential tenets of the Christian faith. DBU, therefore, aspires to fulfill this requirement by providing its students with the finest possible education, all to the glory of God.
