Since 1902, students have come to Northwestern to learn and develop as leaders through Christ-centered, academically excellent education.

University of Northwestern (UNW) is a Christ-centered liberal arts university located in the heart of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul.

All members of the UNW community—students, faculty, staff—profess faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Our shared faith brings us together in a powerful way as we learn and grow together in Christ.
