WU Mission

To graduate individuals who exemplify academic excellence and Christian character, who are prepared to lead and committed to serve.

CELEBRATING 50 YEARS

Founded in 1968 by the Church of God (Anderson, Indiana), Warner University offers a Christian liberal arts college education. The first four Warner graduates received their diplomas in 1972. Warner’s 300-acre campus property, donated by Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Holland, has grown from just two buildings in 1968 to ten, including the 49,000-square-foot Darby Academic Building and the newest resident housing, Holland Hall. Dr. David A. Hoag became the third president of WU in 2016. Previous leadership included Dr. Gregory V. Hall (1991 – 2016) and Dr. Leroy Fulton (1968 – 1991).
