Spokane, Washington: Great Northern University today announced that the university is accepting applications for the Fall semester of this school year. GNU has received approval from the Washington Student Achievement Council (WSAC). The university offers seven undergraduate degree programs and seven certificate programs taught by experienced faculty. The GNU campus is headquartered in the Spokane University District.

In November of 2017, Moody Bible Institute (in Chicago) announced that it would close the Spokane Biblical Studies campus (located at Fourth Memorial Church). According to Dr. Wendy Liddell, “Spokane has had a higher education campus at Fourth Memorial Church for over 45 years.” With the faculty and the facility already in place, the faculty began praying that God might bless the founding of a new university. Plans were immediately put into place to pursue the establishment of this institution.

Dr. Wendy Liddell, President of Great Northern University, stated, “This has been an incredibly accelerated process involving many people. Their efforts have been truly inspiring.” GNU will begin classes on September 11, 2018.
