Academics & Research

Olivet University is a warm and friendly place to pursue a serious Christian education. Olivet University students come from a wide range of age groups, geographical areas, educational backgrounds, and cultural heritages, creating a rich and challenging educational environment. Community and camaraderie are among the fringe benefits of the instructional programs at Olivet University. Living, working, and worshiping together, students and faculty develop friendships and professional relationships that last a lifetime.

Olivet University professors understand their academic work to be in the service of the church. Most faculty members have experienced ministry first-hand and all are currently engaged in the life of the church from the local to the national level. A diverse group, our resident faculty includes scholars of different traditions and philosophies; their classes blend practical discussions of pastoral work with deep theological insight.
