Our job is to help men and women figure out WHO they were created to be, WHAT they were created to do, and HOW to live in the dream that God has already dreamed for their lives." - Dr. Forrest Inslee, Global Studies



I love being in leadership at Northwest because this place focuses on serving others. We see the needs of those on our campus, in the community, and around the world, and we strive to use our gifts, talents, and passions to meet those needs." - Ilona Trofimovich, President, Northwest University Student Government



Don't hold anything back during your time here. Invest deeply in people. Study hard. Believe firmly that God has prepared you for everything ahead of you, and just watch as God begins to transform your heart in the years to follow at Northwest University." - Lindsey Wessa, Northwest University Alumni


What does it mean to be part of a learning community? From the moment you step onto Northwest University's campus, you will begin to answer this very question as you immerse yourself in a community of faculty and peers who are dedicated to holistic learning and development - through heart, head, and hand.


Charles Dickens once said, "There is wisdom of the head and a wisdom of the heart." At NU, we believe true wisdom begins with the heart, for it is with the heart that you will discover God's calling for you.


Once it develops in the heart, wisdom permeates through one's intellectual pursuits. We believe academic endeavors are your opportunity to further cultivate wisdom, but also your Christian calling. Using a worldview that integrates Scriptural truths, your professors will challenge you to develop your knowledge and skills. Whether you are majoring in business, ministry, nursing, education, or the arts, the education you receive at NU will equip you to serve and lead others.


Finally, wisdom comes through hands-on engagement. The spiritual and intellectual tools you gain from your time at NU will prepare you to live out the Gospel in practical ways. Everyone aspires to make a difference - Northwest University will empower you to make it happen.
