Southern Nazarene University

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 training 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.

The leadership at Southern Nazarene University thinks so, and is a part of a growing group of evangelicals, including members of the distinguished Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, who believe global conservation is a faith-based responsibility. Conservation is cast in moral terms. In an effort to distinguish their mission from “green” radicals and the negative connotations often associated with some environmentalism, they refer to their movement as “creation care”.
