About Warner University
Warner University’s liberal arts curriculum prepares students to successfully meet the demands of today’s workplace and the challenges of graduate school. Graduates emerge as servant leaders who evaluate issues from a Christian perspective while striving to live out their belief in their communities, churches, and homes. The administration, faculty and staff are qualified in their areas of service and dedicated to the ministry of higher education. History: Warner University was founded in 1968 by the Church of God, Anderson, Indiana, as a liberal arts, co-educational, Christian university. The campus was built on 300 acres donated by Mr. and Mrs. J.W. Holland. The first commencement took place in 1972 with four graduates. Warner’s third President, Dr. David A. Hoag, was inaugurated in the fall of 2016. He is preceded in leadership by only two others; Dr. Gregory V. Hall (1991–2016) and Dr. Leroy Fulton (1968–1991).
