UNIVERSITY SNAPSHOT

Main Campus

Welcome to Grand Canyon University (GCU), Arizona's premier private Christian university. For more than 65 years, our Phoenix campus has been the gateway to success for countless scholars and industry leaders. Our commitment to our Christian worldview is carried out in a loving way that provides greater unity across the university, and our foundational documents help articulate those beliefs and who we are as a community. With acres of scenic grounds and outstanding facilities, we invite the next generation of students and working professionals to enjoy the complete university experience.

University Growth

GCU is growing rapidly with plans for continued expansion. Since 2009, we have invested millions into the university to improve the quality of academic offerings and student experiences. This infrastructure includes new classrooms, laboratories, libraries, student support centers, residence halls and recreational facilities. In fall 2016, we welcomed a record number of students to our Phoenix campus and we plan to expand our student population and campus facilities going forward. Our university also continues to accommodate our growing online and evening student communities. We have tens of thousands of online students attending class from across the globe. In turn, we are constantly refining our digital platforms to deliver GCU's outstanding campus experience to virtual settings. We are also building additional campus locations to help full-time and evening students attend class closer to home. "New" is infused throughout GCU's growing campus. In fall 2016, we finished construction on a 173,447-square-feet, state-of-the-art engineering building, designed to accommodate our growing number of students studying in STEM majors. We also opened three new on-campus apartment buildings for upperclassmen. As part of our initiative to add 10 new sports facilities to campus in the next two years, we unveiled the brand new, 6,000-seat GCU Stadium in fall 2016, home to our NCAA Division I soccer teams. GCU has also expanded outside of campus to include new properties. The GCU Hotel is located close to campus and offers affordable room rates and renovated accommodations - the perfect place for families to stay when visiting their student. Canyon 49 Grill, located in the hotel, offers the perfect local hangout, with delicious food, family-friendly atmosphere and plenty of Lope spirit and hospitality. Explore the GCU Hotel by visiting gcuhotel.com; click on Dining to browse Canyon 49 Grill's menus. The Grand Canyon Beverage Company, also located in the hotel and on campus, offers gourmet beverages, including coffee, tea, and specialty drinks.

Student Experience at GCU

At GCU, you'll find everything you need to enjoy a full college experience, from NCAA Division I athletics to suite-style residence halls, popular dining options, fun events and clubs, and organizations. Traditional, online and evening students are equally valued members of our community and receive full access to GCU's campus resources and events.

GCU's Mission and Vision

Vision GCU is a premier Christian university, educating students to lead and serve. Mission Grand Canyon University prepares learners to become global citizens, critical thinkers, effective communicators and responsible leaders by providing an academically challenging, values-based curriculum from the context of our Christian heritage.

Christian Worldview: Graduates of GCU will be able to express aspects of the Christian worldview, which affect human value and dignity, ethical decision-making, academic disciplines and vocation. "For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus." (1 Timothy 2:5) Global Citizens: Global citizens learn with empathy, avoid ethnocentrism and embrace the reality that people are different. They appreciate a range of perspectives on history, religion, value systems and many other aspects of life. Global citizenship means that by understanding others, we learn to understand ourselves. "The same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him." (Romans 10:12b) Effective Communicators: Effective communicators excel in language proficiency, understand how the written word impacts others intellectually and emotionally, and are challenged to employ new venues and modes of communication. "May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord." (Psalm 19:14) Responsible Leaders: Responsible leaders are grounded in the reality of the world, accept the consequences of choice and strive unselfishly to help others meet their highest potential through servant leadership. "Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant." (Matthew 20:26) Critical Thinkers: Critical thinkers work to master clarity and logic in thought. They ask questions and pursue knowledge to avoid the blind acceptance of ideas, searching for solutions rather than dwelling on problems. "Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth." (2 Timothy 2:15)
