Anderson University is among the fastest-growing private universities in the country, according to the U.S. Department of Education and the Chronicle of Higher Education Almanac. Increased enrollment only tells part of the story, however; the reason for it is Anderson’s reputation as a premier institution of higher learning and status among the best regional universities in the South as recognized by both U.S. News & World Report and The Princeton Review. Further, U.S. News & World Report for 2022 named Anderson as one of the “Best Value” schools among regional universities in the south, and the Wall Street Journal for 2021 named Anderson #26 for best student engagement among all universities in the United States.

At the heart of the educational program is an uncompromising commitment to the liberal arts as a means of preparing students with both a breadth and depth of knowledge they need not only to be successful in the career of their choice, but to be successful in all realms of life—in family, community, work, and church.
