Celebrating a Legacy of Transformation

From our humble beginnings as the Training School for Christian Workers in Whittier to one of the top Christ-centered universities in the nation, God has used Azusa Pacific University throughout our 125-year history to advance His work in the world. Our students graduate transformed to answer a higher calling and make a difference in the lives of others. As we celebrate this special anniversary, we honor our rich past and look forward to our promising future—extending APU’s legacy of transformation to include new generations of disciples and scholars.

“As Azusa Pacific University celebrates our 125th anniversary, we invite our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends to join us at several events throughout the year where we will recognize the inspiring impact that our APU community has made since 1899—locally, nationally, and across the globe. We thank each of you for living out our God First mission and ensuring that APU’s best days lie ahead as we continue to transform lives for the cause of Christ.”
