Brief history

ANU is a private Christian University and an institution of the Church of the Nazarene International, whose mission and vision follows the Wesleyan Holiness Tradition. It was established to prepare leaders for the Church both at ministerial and laity level and therefore the Church of the Nazarene sought to address the challenges witnessed in African society in the early 1980s through an institution of higher education. In accordance with the Kenya University’s Act of 1985 – provision for establishment of private universities in Kenya – the Church settled on Kenya as a location to start a Nazarene University which became the first one outside North America.
