Freed-Hardeman University

Freed-Hardeman University is dedicated to helping students develop their God-given talents for His glory by empowering them with an education that integrates Christian faith, scholarship, and service. It seeks to provide college-level courses, activities, and resources designed to promote total growth in a Christian environment. The university is governed by a self-perpetuating board of trustees who are members of churches of Christ and who hold the institution in trust for its founders, alumni, and supporters. Most of its students are members of the church of Christ, but it enrolls students of any or no religious affiliation. Students are required to complete a liberal arts core, and Bible courses are considered an important part of that core; however, most majors are career-oriented, in keeping with the university's motto of "Teaching how to live and how to make a living." The Engaged Learning Initiative (ELI) also allows students and faculty to work in close mentoring relationships to gain practical real-world skills. Students can design and request funding for their own ELI projects. Courses are offered by ten academic departments organized into four colleges. The university also offers a travel abroad program based in Belgium and a Spanish immersion program based in Spain.
