ACU Athletics Mission Statement

ACU athletics will strive for nationally competitive programs, while delivering a quality education to our student-athletes with an intentional focus on spiritual and personal development. We will expose our student-athletes to what a relationship with Jesus Christ can mean in one's life. In addition, they will develop a deeper understanding of the spiritual gifts they've been given and the ways they can impact their homes, communities and world.

We expect all student-athletes, coaches and staff to do their best to maximize their academic, athletic, social and spiritual development within the framework of the NCAA Division I Philosophy.
