A university as an institution of higher education and research grants academic degrees in a variety of subjects and provides both undergraduate education and postgraduate education.

But the word "university" is derived from the Latin "universitas" meaning "a whole") as in the idiom universitas magistrorum et scholarium, which roughly means "community of teachers and scholars."

The word magistrorum is the genitive plural of magister which was the Latin word meaning “a master, chief, head, superior, director, teacher, etc.” and a title of the Middle Ages, given to a person in authority, or to one having a license from a university to teach philosophy and the liberal arts. Scholarium from Ancient Greek σχολή (skholḗ) and the Latin schola, a school or place of learning.

The original Latin word "universitas" refers in general to "a number of persons associated into one body, a society, company, community, guild, corporation, etc."

The early Christian congregants formed a network of people in free association that formed independent virtuous communities of self sufficiency and willing to learn what might be call the inconvenient truth. They were united into an almost national group by the common teachings and purposes of Jesus the Christ and His appointed corpus or church.

Preparing University includes the whole community of people who seek to know and do the truth in practical and informed practices.
