The Next Chapter

You are part of Gardner-Webb’s story, today and tomorrow.

It began with a vision, the dream of a place where people could grow intellectually in an environment of faith. A high school became a junior college, the junior college became a four-year institution, and the four-year institution grew into one of the region’s most comprehensive Christian universities.

As an alumnus, parent, or friend, you are a vital part of Gardner-Webb’s story. You exemplify the faith, service, and leadership we hope our students will emulate in their homes, workplaces, churches, and communities.

Today GWU stands on the threshold of our next great chapter, one your generosity will help write. Together we will propel Gardner-Webb toward an exciting future as one of the nation’s preeminent Christian universities.
