Tomorrow marks the 90th birthday of John Brown University. On Sept. 29, 1919 Southwestern College Institute, which later became JBU, held class for the first time. The school at that time consisted of one building, seventy students and a handful of teachers.
Many things have changed in the past nine decades. We have more buildings, additional locations, and many more faculty and students, but one thing remains the same: our mission to educating the whole person -- head, heart, hand.

JBU quality. Convenient scheduling.
John Brown University’s mission is to provide Christ-centered education that prepares people to honor God and serve others by developing their intellectual, spiritual, and professional lives. At JBU, we understand that a traditional campus experience isn’t for everyone. That’s why we developed our Degree Completion Program, which integrates the unparalleled quality of a John Brown University education with the convenience of online or evening classes.
