    WAU is a Christ-centered institution of higher education that supports a culture of excellence where all feel valued. Our vision as an Adventist university is to produce graduates who bring moral leadership and competence to their communities.

    The state of Washington Adventist University is strong. In the increasingly competitive higher education market of the past few years, the university is working hard to become one of the premier small universities in the mid-Atlantic region. In doing so, efforts to improve the academic programs, enhance the physical campus and provide better support for students are being carefully balanced and aligned to ensure that the university is growing with excellence. Although the changes required to stay strong have elicited considerable concern from individuals in our community, this website offers answers to some of those questions and space for remaining concerns.

    We are committed to providing students with a distinctive, faith-informed, Christ-centered learning experience. This commitment includes ensuring that our students experience the heart of the Master Teacher, Jesus Christ, and enter into a forever friendship with Him. We welcome and need your prayers, championship, goodwill and support as we seek to fulfill Gods mission for this vital, educational ministry.
