Grand Canyon Education
Grand Canyon University (GCU) is Arizona’s premier Christian university committed to making a private education affordable. Established in 1949, GCU has become an unprecedented success story and is defined as a leader in education and an anchor institution in its community.
In the last 10 years, GCU has benefited thousands of students, families and employees, the neighboring inner-city community and the businesses that covet its graduates. This structure also created a model that allowed GCU to freeze on-campus tuition for 10 consecutive years, making higher education affordable to all socioeconomic classes.
GCU has been able to invest in a nearly $1.5 billion expansion of the campus through new technologies, classrooms, laboratories, athletic facilities and student amenities. Today, GCU helps over 22,000 ground students and 90,000 online students find their purpose and prepare for a career that makes a difference. GCU offers over 275 academic programs including 240+ online academic programs.
