Appearance is a very recognizable part of one’s testimony, and I Timothy 4:12 challenges us to be an example in all areas of life. The dress code at MBA stresses that students be modest, neat, and appropriate in their attire. We ask that support is given to the application of the dress code understanding that some aspects reflect institutional preferences. Dress policies are intended to maintain a standard that is above reproach and is easy to understand and enforce. Clothing and hairstyles that are identified with culturally stigmatized fashions and activities are not allowed. We desire our students to be glorifying and pleasing to God (I Corinthians 10:31).
