For nearly 50 years, Mount Vernon Nazarene University has more than fulfilled the divine promise so evident at its birth. Through the sacrifice and faithfulness of countless individuals, an institution that welcomed a Pioneer class of 191 students in 1968 now boasts more than 18,000 alumni scattered across the globe.
But the real legacy of Mount Vernon Nazarene University cannot be measured in buildings erected or bachelor's degrees conferred.
Rather, it is found in the lives of its students and graduates, its faculty and staff, its alumni and partners and friends, who carry with them a deeply held value which permeates this place and its people: To seek to learn is to seek to serve. And through our service, to change the world with the love of Christ.
