Northern Caribbean University (NCU) is a private, liberal-arts institution, located in Jamaica, that is owned and operated by the Jamaica Union Conference and the Atlantic, Caribbean Union Mission of Seventh-day Adventists (comprising the territories the Bahamas, Cayman Islands and the Turks and Caicos Islands). With its main campus only 2 miles south of the town of Mandeville, in Manchester, and three regional campuses situated in Kingston, Montego Bay and St. Ann, this university offers a number of professional, pre-professional and vocational programmes in a spiritually wholesome and aesthetically pleasing atmosphere. NCU operates in harmony with the beliefs, practices and educational philosophy of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. As such, it encourages students to relate their academic pursuits to their understanding of the Christian faith. It emphasizes the development of a sound Christian character and seeks to maintain an atmosphere, which fosters in its students, commitment and growth in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Thus, faith and learning combine to prepare students for practical Christian usefulness. In their conduct and dealings, faculty, staff and students alike must comply with the standards set by the institution in keeping with our Seventh-day Adventist beliefs.
