Faulkner University (Alabama - US)

Faulkner University is a private Christian university, located in Montgomery, Alabama, USA, and affiliated with the Church of Christ. The University was founded in 1942 as Montgomery Bible School. In 1953 the school's name was changed to Alabama Christian College (ACC). In 1965, the college was moved to its present location on Atlanta Highway. 1975 marked the beginning of the school's satellite campuses in Mobile, Huntsville and Birmingham. In 1985, the school was renamed to Faulkner University in honor of Dr. James H. Faulkner, Sr., a longtime supporter and chairman of the board.

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 journalism. Faulkner also offers six post-graduate degrees including a Juris Doctor. Additional education-enhancement opportunities exist through the Great Books Honors College and the studies 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.
