Our History

Faulkner University has been a part of Montgomery, Alabama since its beginnings on Ann Street as Montgomery Bible School in 1942. Joe Greer served as the first chairman of the Board of Trustees. Drs. Rex Turner and Leonard Johnson served as the co-founding presidents of the school.

In 1953, the school was renamed Alabama Christian College, and eleven years later, the present property on the Atlanta Highway was purchased.

Extended campuses in Birmingham, Huntsville, and Mobile were opened in 1975. The Thomas Goode Jones School of Law was acquired by Alabama Christian in 1983, and one year later the College was accredited as a Senior College. In 1985, the college was renamed Faulkner University in honor of longtime supporter, trustee, and chairman of the board, Dr. James Faulkner of Bay Minnette, Alabama.

In the twenty years since college became Faulkner University, the campus has grown to include the trio of buildings that adorn the front of the campus: Jones School of Law, Harris College of Business and Executive Education, and the V.P. Black College of Biblical Studies and the Cloverdale Center for Family Strengths. Apartments have been built for upper classmen, and the M. B. “Pop” Myers Fine Arts Center has been transformed into a home worthy of Montgomery’s only regularly scheduled dinner theatre. The Student Multiplex, a recent addition, is a massive building with plenty of classrooms and fitness and recreational facilities. Plans are also underway for a major renovation of the Gus Nichols Library.

Faulkner University is proud of its continuing role as a growing and dynamic part of the Montgomery community through education and service.

Our Mission

The mission of Faulkner University is to glorify God through education of the whole person, emphasizing integrity of character in a caring Christian environment where every individual matters every day.
