The Purpose of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA is to establish and advance at colleges and universities witnessing communities of students and faculty who follow Jesus as Savior and Lord: growing in love for God, God's Word, God's people of every ethnicity and culture and God's purposes in the world.
InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA® is an evangelical campus mission serving more than 32,000 students and faculty on more than 550 college and university campuses nationwide. Incorporated in 1941, InterVarsity has a rich tradition of campus witness, thoughtful discipleship, and a concern for world missions. College life offers many formative opportunities- new friends and ideas; new choices and lifestyles, new responsibilities and temptations. All challenge a student's moral foothold and contribute to forming character for a lifetime. This is why InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA® is committed to establish Christian witnessing communities on college campuses. We believe that God calls us to help form the character of the next generation of Christian leaders. The university is a marketplace of ideas. Students are challenged to understand competing worldviews. InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA® offers undergraduate students a Christian perspective on the world through multiethnic, ethnic specific, and Greek chapters. InterVarsity staff also work on campus with international students, nurses, graduate students, and faculty. Source: www.intervarsity.org
