A Message from the President
Welcome to Crandall University! I graduated from Crandall in the 1980s and my years at Crandall profoundly shaped me, encouraged me, and prepared me for a career and a life of service.
In spite of our growing number of students from Canada, online, and around the world, at Crandall we work hard to make sure that we preserve a sense of family for our students. At many of the larger universities in Canada, classrooms are filled with hundreds of students. At Crandall most of our undergraduate and graduate classes have fewer than 30 students. This means that at Crandall your professors will know your name and be better able to coach and guide you through your years of study as you prepare for advanced study or your career.
We’ve worked hard to recruit excellent professors. Our instructors have earned advanced degrees at some of the world’s most prestigious research universities including Notre Dame, Columbia, and Harvard in the US; Toronto, UBC, McMaster, Western, and Queens in Canada; and a variety of universities in the UK including Oxford, Durham, St. Andrew’s, and Wales. Our professors have traveled and lectured widely. They have published extensively, and have worked in some pretty exciting roles prior to joining our team.
Crandall’s mission is to “transform lives through quality university education firmly rooted in the Christian faith.” We’ve been able to achieve this mission largely as a result of our ability to attract highly-qualified Christian faculty and staff. They are fantastic; you will love them and they will love you too!
I hope that you will contact our Admissions Office and set up a date to visit our beautiful campus. I’m confident you’ll be impressed by the quality educational and community experience we offer – both inside and outside the classroom. I look forward to meeting you!
