Named the most conservative faculty in America in a 2018 Business Insider poll, Liberty University was founded by conservative activist Jerry Falwell in 1971. Since that point, the college has grown to turn out to be the biggest private nonprofit university in the U.S., with a student body of greater than a hundred and ten,000 on-campus and on-line learners. Today, Liberty serves as a major middle of conservative political ideology and activism, and President Trump delivered the graduation speech at the college’s spring 2017 graduation ceremony. Undergraduates can choose from 10 Christ-centered majors, together with church historical past, ministry administration, and Young Life leadership. The university also can boast an excellent reputation for its liberal arts and sciences applications.
