The Campaign for Cairn University
Forward is a refusal to stand still in the face of a changing world with great need for biblical truth, service, and community.
Forward is the first step in a larger plan to advance the mission and vision of the University.
Forward is the direction of Cairn’s second century.
Moving PEOPLE forward
Cairn University is making a biblical education accessible to students of all backgrounds. We believe that students should be able to choose a college based on what they value, not what they can afford.
Moving PROGRAMS forward
As Cairn explores new majors in science and technology, there is more at stake than employability; biblically integrated training in these fields is an investment in the effectiveness of ministries and the spread of the gospel.
Moving PLACES forward
It is time for Cairn to update and expand our facilities, creating spaces that anticipate further growth and facilitate even stronger relationships among those on our campus and across our region.

As the first person in my immediate family to go to college, I feel blessed to receive an education through The Cairn Fund. The staff in the Financial Aid department walked side by side with my parents and me to help us figure out how to finance my education. I can honestly say that without the financial support, I would not be at school right now pursuing my bachelor’s and master’s degrees!
