SNU Mission Statement

To make Christlike disciples through higher education in Christ-centered community.

As a Christian community of scholars, we model the hospitality of grace, the pursuit of truth, and the practice of discipleship, all within the Wesleyan-holiness tradition, as we prepare graduates who think with clarity, act with integrity, and serve with purpose.

Lifestyle Expectations

Employees that decide to work for SNU are required to read and agree with the following statement:

Members of the SNU community voluntarily commit themselves to the following standards of behavior, which result from the conviction that these standards serve the good of the individual as well as the institution. Specific conduct unacceptable on or off campus includes theft, disorderly conduct, disruption of University operations, dishonesty, gambling, sexual misconduct, possession/use of pornographic material, discriminatory or demeaning behavior, immodest or inappropriate apparel, use or possession of tobacco, alcoholic beverages, or illegal drugs, and other conduct inconsistent with the goals and traditions of the Church of the Nazarene and the University.

Our Nazarene Heritage
Founded in 1899, Southern Nazarene University is a private, Christian, liberal arts university - a service of the Church of the Nazarene. Located on a 40-acre campus just west of Oklahoma City, SNU grew out of several small colleges committed to educating people for lives of service to God, leadership, and reconciliation toward their neighbors and within the global community. More than 32,000 alumni work and serve throughout the United States and the world. Read About Our Heritage
