In 1882, Dr. A.B. Simpson, a Canadian immigrant pastor of the Thirteenth Street Presbyterian Church in New York City, founded what would become Alliance University. By God’s grace and favor, Alliance University proudly marked its 140th anniversary year in 2022 as a Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA) educational institution. Established originally as the Missionary Training Institute offering diplomas in Christian education, men and women were qualified to fulfill the historic mission to “take the whole gospel to the whole world.” Today Alliance University is a fully evolved institution offering degrees with accreditations in its undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs. The legacy of the University continues to empower and equip students in their spiritual, intellectual and social formation preparing them for lives of service to Christ and His Church and to society in a way that reflects the Kingdom of God and its ethnic diversity.
Under the leadership of its 13th president, Rajan S. Mathews, Alliance University’s academic structure includes Alliance Theological Seminary, Alliance Graduate School of Counseling, School of Arts and Sciences, School of Bible and Christian Ministry, School of Business and Leadership, School of Education, School of Music, School of Nursing and School of Social Work. The 138 full-time faculty and staff—50% women and minorities—are committed to serving the more than 1,600 students in person and online where 50 majors are offered. The integration of faith and learning has its foundation in five institutional core values of being academically excellent, globally engaged, intentionally diverse, personally transforming and socially relevant.
