Arizona Christian University (ACU), a conservative Christian university in Glendale, is experiencing remarkable growth, reaching 1,200 students this fall from just 400 in 2010. Under President Len Munsil’s leadership, ACU credits its success to its Christian principles, aiming to educate and equip followers of Christ as influential leaders. ACU introduced new academic programs such as film studies, political science, and pre-law, alongside traditional degrees taught from a Christian perspective. The university’s core curriculum combines biblical studies with the classics, fostering a spiritually enriched education. Despite facing opposition from leftist-dominated institutions, ACU remains committed to its values. Munsil plans to further expand enrollment to 5,000 students in the future.
