"No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms."

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights - Article 4







Human trafficking is modern-day slavery. People using force, fraud, or coersion to exploit other human beings.  It is the second largest, fastest growing crime in the United States, and it happens in every zip code in our great nation.

Because superior learning is a natural outcome of learning with

engagement, the college strives to ensure that traditional liberal

education is actively connected to the real world. Learning at

Defiance is characterized by forging intellectual connections

and engagement of the mind with the environment, the self with

others, the individual with community, generality with context,

and deliberation with action. As a result, students are expected to

combine knowledge and understanding with active leadership and

service as they develop reasoning abilities, superior professional

skills, a well-developed sense of self and moral judgment, and an

understanding of their civic roles and responsibilities.


We encourage our students to be of service to their fellow

students, their chosen fields of study, their communities and

the world. We provide opportunities for students to transform

society through civic engagement along with application of their

knowledge and understanding to service.
