Dear Friends,

Your years at Asbury University can be the most formative of your life and the most critical in determining your future. Because we understand this at Asbury University, we approach our vocation in Christian higher education with a sense of privilege and high purpose. There are a broad range of intellectually challenging and potentially transformative academic and communal experiences offered here.

This is a community of faith and learning. Beyond the transfer of information or even the facilitating of your academic success, Asbury University is committed to equipping you to think critically, creatively and Christianly, and to embrace fully the unfolding plan of God for your life and vocation.

As a Christian liberal arts institution in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition, Asbury University affords the opportunity to gain the information and the skill sets needed to function productively in our complex and changing world, as well as those qualities of Christ-like character that will prepare you for a lifetime of leadership and service.

Education at Asbury is Christ-centered, for He is "before all things and in him all things hold together" (Colossians 1:17). We invite you to join us in exploring new horizons of thought and experience emerging out of our central allegiance to the lordship of Christ and the truth of His word.

Sandra C. Gray, President
