Abilene Christian University

Abilene Christian University (ACU) is a private, non-profit university in Abilene, Texas, United States, affiliated with Churches of Christ. It was founded in 1906 as Childers Classical Institute.

Abilene Christian University grew from an idea held by A.B. Barret and Charles Roberson to form a school in West Texas. The Churches of Christ in Abilene agreed to back the project. J.W. Childers sold Barret land and a large house west of the town, and lowered the price with the stipulation that the school would be named in his honor. Childers Classical Institute opened in the fall of 1906, with 25 students. It initially included a lower school starting in the seventh grade.

We believe in the Five Pillars of Community


We commit to treat people with respect and equality and ensure that each individual receives the same basic rights and is celebrated for their unique identity free from discrimination of any kind.


We commit to providing living conditions that exceed resident expectations and provide exceptional living spaces for community, self care, and learning.


We strive to provide an experience that is thoughtful, relevant and aware of the residents living in these spaces, which includes how we program events, write policy, and equip residential spaces.


We believe that every student living in our halls should be known and have a place at the table. We believe no student should ever be alone or without support, and in everything we do as a community, we are inclusive of each member.


We believe in demonstrating the love of Christ and upholding His commandment to love your neighbor as yourself. As a residential community, we work to hold one another accountable for the way we love one another and we strive to humble ourselves to learn from those who are different from us.
