“The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.” Psalm 9:9


ACU at CitySquare places students in transformative learning experiences – both undergraduate and graduate degrees, curricular and co-curricular experiences, new and existing programs.


For the past two years, ACU faculty, staff, administrators, and even students have been exploring how learning in a context like CitySquare might extend, enrich, and deepen student learning and formation as participants in the mission of God in the world.


The partnership between ACU and CitySquare provides the location and occasion for a transformative educational experience across multiple disciplines in the university.
