  • We live in a world of unprecedented connectedness, where one event inevitably affects another, and another. That reality is not lost on Olivet Nazarene University; we embrace it!
  • Our presentation of this year in review reflects a variety of ways the University has stayed connected to our core mission to provide an “Education with a Christian Purpose.” You’ll see it in our financial statements, in our impact examples and in the recognition of our treasured relationships with constituents near and far.

    Olivet faculty and staff work to maintain the highest levels of efficiency and effectiveness for the sake of the students. From this past year, we are pleased to report:

    • For the eighth consecutive year, Olivet has been ranked as one of the Best Colleges for 2013 by “U.S. News & World Report” in its “College Guidebook” and on its website.
    • Olivet is now featured on, a website dedicated to honoring U.S. colleges and universities that exhibit excellence in student-focused higher education.
    • Olivet ranked as one of 18 Best Christian Workplaces for 2012.
    • For fall 2012, Olivet experienced its largest traditional undergraduate population (2,719 students) in the University’s history.
    • Olivet also enrolled 1,825 graduate and nontraditional students through the School of Graduate and Continuing Studies.
    • Capital projects and campus improvements enhance the student experience (including the opening of the Student Life and Recreation Center).

    You can find more highlights in the News and Events section of our website. None would be possible without the divine hand of God at work through you. All of our constituents make up a great orchestra, each one playing a part in a symphony of support for Olivet. Thank you!

    I invite you to explore anew your connection to Olivet through the 2012 Annual Report. We deeply value your investments in ONU’s students, and we will continue to guard the integrity you’ve come to expect. Praise God from Whom all blessings flow!
