About CCU | Cincinnati Christian University

About CCU

CCU is committed to providing an excellent educational, spiritual, and social experience for each student.



Our Vision

Cincinnati Christian University exists to educate men and women to live by biblical principles and transformed lives, empowering them with character, skills, insight, and vision to advance the kingdom and impact society for Christ.


On September 23, 1924, the new school began its first session in two brick buildings. Two things were evident from the beginning; first, the bible was taught with the earnest desire of arriving at its true meaning . . . and second, men and women whose earnest desire was to serve God, were received in classes and given work they most needed.
