Mission Statement

The Council for Christian Colleges & Universities was founded in 1976 to advance the cause of Christ-centered liberal arts institutions. Our 105 members represent 27 denominations and are located in 32 states. We also have 77 affiliate institutions in 24 nations. The Council offers study abroad programs for students, professonal development programs for faculty and administrators, public affairs, and federal relations on behalf of the 280,000 students, 25,000 faculty and staff and 4000 trustees. Our membership is growing, undergraduate enrollments are increasing much faster than the rest of higher education, and student surveys show much greater satisfaction than students in the rest of private higher education. Our institutions are intentional about the integration of biblical faith, scholarship and service. And God is blessing their efforts!
