Sherry Powers, Ed.D.
Provost, Asbury University

A rigorous academic program, firmly grounded in the liberal arts tradition, combined with a vital commitment to the person and work of Jesus Christ, as expressed through the Wesleyan tradition, results in a Christian community of learners that successfully integrates academic excellence and spiritual vitality in all of its curricular experiences.

If you are looking for a Christ-centered education or you are a potential faculty member seeking a vital Christian environment in which to invest your life, I invite you to explore the contents of our website and see for yourself if Asbury University is the place to which God is calling you.
