Living by the Dalmatia Model
UASPR is a prototype community based on the cultural model established in Dalamatia, an early civilization explained in The URANTIA Book to have been founded on spiritual principles and practical solutions of self-sufficiency.
Through the developing culture of our spiritual living communities, we honor the successful model of Dalamatia and work to restore, in this modern era, a working prototype-culture founded on spiritual principles and recognizing spiritual reality.
UASPR Founder Van / Gabriel of Urantia / TaliasVan coined the phrase "My child is your child and your child is mine." This is modeled at UASPR and Divine Administration where the heart and focus of our cultural development is to further spiritual progress and give wisdom a place in the temporal plane of living. Dalamatian culture expressed this in nearly all facets of their existence for hundreds of thousands of years—it is clear that they offer something of importance in our modern age.
UASPR touches thousands of lives and acts as an instrument for developing a world point of view in all areas of human thinking, feeling and doing. Our residential system based on Dalamatian culture inspires students to create lives of service by providing diversified opportunities for the giving of one's talents and capabilities to increase the welfare of others.
We have all experienced the "magic" of human ingenuity and what a monumental resource that becomes during times of emergency. Today we are seeing the devastation of our disconnected ways and we have nearly lost ourselves in a world too technologically advanced. We are in need of opening our hearts to the power of service to our fellow man and to "the golden rule."
Our University culture brings spirit back into living, faith back into intellect, and the reality of destiny into consideration of each student's purpose. We believe in spiritual living communities and understand that it is increasingly urgent that humanity develop new ways of living holistically and regeneratively. This is why we train our students to become stewards of all life and to assume responsibility of care for future generations.
