Abilene Christian University educates leaders who believe God calls us to love with all our hearts, lead with all our minds, and serve with all our strength. We aim to transform our students into the likeness of Jesus and produce leaders who think critically, globally and missionally through distinctive and innovative programs that deliver a unique, Christ-centered experience that draws students into community.
