Olivet Nazarene University, a denominational university in the Wesleyan tradition, exists to provide a university-level liberal arts education with a Christian purpose. Olivet offers more than 100 fields of academic study and awards degrees at the undergraduate, masters, and doctoral levels.
Our mission is to provide high-quality academic instruction for the purpose of personal development, career and professional readiness, and the preparation of individuals for lives of service to God and humanity.
ONU professors are renowned experts in their fields. The majority of our faculty have earned a Ph.D. or the highest degree in their field. And they have earned those degrees from nearly every prestigious educational institution in America.
No doubt the quality of the teaching at Olivet explains the quality of our alumni. Our graduates leave Olivet to serve as pastors, educators, scientists, professionals — leaders in their fields, their churches and their communities.
People are the difference at Olivet, from our University's president, faculty and staff, to the students and alumni whom we serve.
We are Olivet. Together, we believe. Together, we become.
