FOCUS ON ACADEMICS
Combining cutting edge instruction and facilities with more than a century of tradition and history, ACU offers nationally recognized academic programs within a supportive, Christ-centered community. We believe students learn best when they are able to work side-by-side with our talented faculty and staff as they engage in learning through research, internships, Study Abroad experiences, service learning opportunities, team projects and learning communities. Our ability to attract world-class faculty allows us to provide students with a vibrant and innovative educational experience that equips them to make a real difference in the world.
