The SAU Concept

Explore our Christian approach to education.

What began as a small elementary and secondary school in the late 1800s has evolved into a top-tier ecumenical Christian university committed to lifelong involvement in the study and application of the liberal arts, with Jesus Christ as the perspective for learning and critical participation in the contemporary world.

At SAU, your spiritual growth is just as important as your academic growth. That is why each of our educational programs is built on a foundation of academic and educational integrity and faith. It is our belief that by integrating faith into education, you will advance your purpose in life in a way that is needed in society and is pleasing to God.

Students of our programs either share the Christian perspective of the university or are amenable to such perspectives while a student. This means all students are expected to govern their lives in a way that is pleasing to the Creator, is enriching to oneself and to others.

Spring Arbor University is a community of learners distinguished by our lifelong involvement in the study and application of the liberal arts, total commitment to Jesus Christ as the perspective for learning, and critical participation in the contemporary world.
