About Bushnell University
Bushnell University is a Christian, private, liberal-arts, comprehensive university closely affiliated with churches of the Stone-Campbell/Restoration Movement. From this unique heritage the University embraces the ideal that we are “Christians only” – but not the “only Christians” – and offers its resources to students and congregations of many church traditions. These students are affiliated with denominational and non-denominational groups, such as Presbyterian, Baptist, Methodist, Foursquare, Lutheran, Nazarene, Episcopal, Assembly of God, Catholic, and Community Churches. The University was founded in 1895 and is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.
