From the President
Welcome to Faulkner University! Whether you are a prospective or current student, parent, alumnus or friend, we are pleased that you are visiting our website to learn more about our institution.
Faulkner University is a distinctively Christian university whose mission is to educate the whole person, including the mind, heart and soul. We are proud of our academic accomplishments, but our reason for being as a university goes much deeper. We seek to assist and encourage students in their spiritual growth — and to equip them to live successfully as Christian men and women in today's global community.
Faulkner has long been a leader in offering executive and professional degree-completion programs for adult students, and we are now expanding our offerings to include online degree programs. Our traditional program is still the flagship of the university, where students live on campus, take classes from caring professors who know them by name, attend daily chapel services and participate in an active campus life that includes intramural and intercollegiate sports, band, theatre, service and social clubs. It's a place where lives are changed and lifelong friendships are made.
Much has changed in the 38 years since I returned to Montgomery to work for this university, my alma mater. Our academic offerings have expanded, our law school, acquired in 1983, has achieved national recognition and many new buildings grace our beautiful campus. The mission of the university, however, has not changed. Our Christ-centered focus remains steadfast, as does our emphasis on instilling intellect, character and service in our students.
I personally invite you to visit Faulkner and catch our vision. Come and talk with our faculty and staff. If you are a prospective student, make plans now to join us for the next chapter in your own life story. For alumni and friends, we ask for your prayers and generous support so we can continue to provide a Christian education to students for generations to come.
Dr. Billy Hilyer, President
