Abilene Christian University

ACU’s mission is to educate students for Christian service and leadership throughout the world.

ACU is a vibrant, innovative, Christ-centered community that engages students in authentic spiritual and intellectual growth, equipping them to make a real difference in the world.

The university’s Board of Trustees prepared this document in October 2012 to articulate what it means for ACU to be a Christ-centered institution of higher education within the Christian heritage of the Stone-Campbell faith tradition, particularly as expressed in Churches of

Christ. We strongly affirm the finest values of that heritage and pursue a Christ-centered focus using the inspired Word of God to guide our decisions as an institution.Rooted in these values, ACU will pursue sound and innovative educational principles so our students will be fully

prepared to live lives of Christian service and leadership. This document provides guidance in meeting the challenges and opportunities of the future.
