We've been around a while—since 1913 in fact.

NNU here for good

We believe the world can be a better place. Our graduates are making that happen: teaching, healing, innovating, researching, preaching, caring and serving in communities everywhere. We are grateful for our rich heritage, but we’ve got our eyes on the future, too—a future you’ll help create.

What to Expect at NNU

1Be Transformed

Mentally, spiritually, physically, socially, and intellectually. Our desire is that you leave better than when you arrived.

2Find Truth

Education pursues truth. At NNU, you will explore knowledge, the wonder of God's creative activity, and the stories of human beings. We pursue Jesus Christ because we believe he is truth incarnate.

3Live in Community

We provide a learning and faith community that teaches, challenges, and encourages each other in every aspect of life.


We believe an NNU education cultivates a life of servanthood as modeled by Jesus Christ. We learn to lead by giving ourselves to God and serving others.
