Kentucky Christian University (KCU) is a comprehensive baccalaureate level Christian university located in Grayson, Kentucky. It was founded on December 1, 1919, as Christian Normal Institute, by J. W. Lusby and J. O. Snodgrass. As a "normal school" its programs included a high school, a junior college, and a training program for public school teachers. During the early 1920s its emphasis shifted to educating students for the Christian ministry. Today, U.S. News and World Report recognizes KCU as one of the Top 50 comprehensive baccalaureate level universities in the South. Degree programs are offered in eight schools within the University: the School of Art and Science, the Sack School of Bible and Ministry, the School of Business, the Keeran School of Education, the School of Music, the School of Nursing, the School of Social Work and Human Services, and the Graduate School. KCU is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and is authorized to award bachelors and masters degrees. All programs requiring professional licensure (i.e. Nursing, Social Work, and Teacher Education) are professionally accredited. Every graduate of KCU takes a thirty-hour core in Biblical Studies and Theology, in addition to the liberal arts core and the student's major area of study (social work, education, ministry, etc.) This combination of biblical studies, liberal arts, and professional studies is a feature unique to Kentucky Christian University. It is the rationale for KCU's self-designation as "The Great Commission University." Twice weekly chapel services are an important part of the KCU experience and contribute to a sense of community on campus. The University is also well known for the strength of its music and athletic programs (football, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's cross country, men's and women's soccer, woman's volleyball.) The University Concert Choir has produced several albums and performs nationally and internationally.
