The mission of Faulkner University is to glorify God through education of the whole person, emphasizing integrity of character in a caring, Christian environment where every individual matters every day.
Faulkner University is committed to providing a nurturing and challenging environment that encourages students to thrive not only academically, but also socially and spiritually. As a Christian liberal arts university associated with the churches of Christ, Faulkner's offerings are continually expanding. Currently our five colleges offer 65 academic degrees ranging from business administration to biblical studies, from biology to e-commerce. Faulkner also offers six post-graduate degrees including a law degree (Juris Doctor). Additional education-enhancement opportunities exist through the Great Books Honors College and the Study Abroad program.
Faulkner also provides a myriad of opportunities for our students' spiritual and personal growth. Daily chapel and a Biblically-based core curriculum provide a basis for spiritual development. For personal growth and enjoyment, Faulkner offers many on-campus activities like social clubs, intramural sports, marching band and theater. Faulkner is also home to a growing competitive athletic program that competes in 10 men's and women's sports. A new sports stadium has brought the excitement of football and soccer to campus.
Undergirding all our offerings, both academic and extracurricular, is Faulkner's commitment to instill within our students the tenets of Godly intellect, character and service for the education of the whole person. We believe that all truth comes from God. With that knowledge, we instruct all courses through the lens of Christianity, emphasizing integrity of character and a Godly attitude in all phases of life.
Commitment to service is also at the core of a Faulkner education. Students are required to perform 40 hours of service each year culminating in 160 hours for graduation. Over the years, Faulkner students have logged thousands of hours in service projects and mission work. As a result of this dedication to helping our neighbors, Faulkner students have received recognition from the community, and our athletic programs consistently earn the Champions of Character designation from the NAIA.
