  • Hire, develop, and retain outstanding faculty who actively support and identify with the mission of Abilene Christian University and who are members of Churches of Christ.
  • Offer a continually updated curriculum that integrates faith and learning within a global context.
  • Employ advanced technology to enhance learning while strengthening students’ abilities to create business solutions.
  • Continuously improve through self-evaluation and peer review, incorporating the views of multiple stakeholders.
  • Provide high-quality academic and career advising.
  • Maintain an active partnership with the business community by promoting internship opportunities for students, serving as consultants, and involving business leaders in the educational process.
