The strength of Greenleaf University is in our
core belief and application in the theory of mentored learning.
In other words, our years of experience, individually and
in the University as a whole, has been that learners benefit
significantly from the guidance and insight of a personal mentor.

great thinkers of history were trained up relying on mentors
to serve as their point of reference throughout their knowledge
acquisition. A mentor does not do the work for you, instead
they are there when you need clarification or assistance in
applying the concept of skill to your practical experience.
This is the English theory of "Tutors".
Every course at Greenleaf University is guided
by a mentor. You may choose to use the same mentor with each
course or program, or you may change mentors as you feel comfortable.
Mentored directed learning is one way the Greenleaf
