Established in 1917, Anderson University (AU) offers an experience to students that is built upon the following core values; integrity, excellence, servant leadership, responsibility and generosity. Every undertaking, whether academic, campus activity or ministry, is supported by these core values. AU offers 7 undergraduate degrees in over 60 different majors and 11 graduate degrees. The leadership at AU takes pride in being comfortable with discomfort, that is discomfort produced by paradoxes that arise when one’s Christian faith and practice intersect challenges either in theory or in hands on training locally or internationally. In addition to a vibrant campus life, AU’s proximity to the major urban center of Indianapolis gives students plenty to keep busy with when they don’t have their heads buried in the books.
