Student Scholarships allow us to provide a Christian college education to many students who might not otherwise be able to afford it. True to its Christian mission, Faulkner makes college available to a significant number of first-generation students. Scholarships play a key role in helping these students pay for a life-changing college education.
Endowment gifts are gifts that keep on giving, benefiting future students even beyond your lifetime. Endowment gifts help build a stronger financial foundation for the university. Income generated by Faulkner’s endowment fund provides a steady stream of annual revenue to meet current and future needs.
The Bible program has always been central to Faulkner University’s mission. Since our founding in 1942 as Montgomery Bible College, the Bible has been faithfully taught in our classrooms. Generations of preachers, youth and family ministers, and missionaries have learned the Bible while students at Faulkner. Our university is home to the V.P. Black College of Biblical Studies and the Kearley Graduate School of Theology.
Faulkner Law, also known as the Jones School of Law at Faulkner University, is one of only three ABA-accredited law schools in Alabama. Faulkner Law has a special mission that sets it apart from other law schools. While offering excellence in legal education, Faulkner Law seeks to promote a Christian environment that encourages all members of the law school community to use their abilities to advance the legal profession and benefit society.
Technology and Learning Center
The Technology and Learning Center is the proposed new name for the planned renovation of the Gus Nichols Library into a Learning/Technology Center. This major capital project will not only reinvent the space but transform the university as a whole. With state-of-the-art technology, the new center will be the learning hub of the university. Plans for the new space include technology-friendly study areas for students, a coffee and snacks café, additional shelf space to expand collections, conference areas and space to house the academically acclaimed Great Books Honors program.
Athletics are important to the life and vitality of a university. Sports are critical to recruiting new students, marketing the university and building alumni engagement. Faulkner fields 10 men’s and women’s intercollegiate sports teams and is a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), the Southern States Athletic Conference and the Mid-South Conference. A gift to the athletic department allows us to recruit athletes of character and provides an avenue to a Christian education for many students who otherwise would not receive one. In recent years, generous contributions from alumni and friends allowed us to build the Billy D. Hilyer Stadium, home to the Eagles’ football and soccer programs, and to expand our athletics fieldhouse.
Church Relations raises money to teach the Bible to all Faulkner students and train preachers. One unique fundraising opportunity through Church Relations is the annual Preachers’ Challenge, begun years ago by the late V.P. Black, for whom the College of Biblical Studies is named. Each year, preachers are challenged to donate or raise $1,000 for the College of Biblical Studies. Since the challenge began, more than $1 million has been raised.
