APU Shared Vision 2022

In September 2011, President Jon R. Wallace, DBA, unveiled to the APU community the Shared Vision 2022. This announcement was preceded by a yearlong journey, commissioned by the Board of Trustees, in which the president engaged in conversation with others and in prayerful introspection to better understand the context of academics now and in the future, to affirm our mission and unique place as a faith-based university, and to more fully understand how APU can equip our graduates to serve God in the world. From these learnings the president, with the support of the Board of Trustees, developed the following vision statement:

APU will be a premier Christian university and a recognized leader in higher education, a city on a hill that reflects the life of Christ and shines the light of Truth.
