Consortium of Adventist Colleges and Universities
The Andrews University’s School of Distance Education operates the Consortium of Adventist Colleges and Universities, which grew out of the Griggs University Consortium arrangements between Griggs University, Andrews University, Oakwood University, and Washington Adventist University. The Griggs University Consortium began in 1969 with Griggs University and Columbia Union College (now Washington Adventist University).
The Consortium serves students around the world: students in partner colleges and universities within the North American Division, students in public universities wishing to take select courses from an Adventist perspective, and students at our partner institutions around the world.
