The Spring Arbor University Concept serves as both a mission and creed for all of those that are associated with Spring Arbor University, whether it be faculty, staff, administration or students. The Verse of the Year is the scripture passage chosen annually to serve as a spiritual framework for guiding the SAU community.
For 135 years, Spring Arbor University has distinguished itself as the place where faith and learning meet. What began as a small elementary and secondary school in the late 1800s has evolved into a top-tier, liberal arts, Christian university with over 4,000 enrolled students. Offering over 60 undergraduate majors and programs, seven degree completion programs, two associate programs, and eight graduate programs, presented in both face-to-face and online formats at 14 locations throughout Michigan and in Ohio, the University continues to meet the growing needs of its students.
