grounded in christian faith
the university was founded in 1882 through a partnership with the city of findlay and the churches of god because both entities believed the community needed a place where individuals could find their calling in life through scholarship, faith, service and the sharing of ideas. these values are still true today at uf. the university of findlay is a place where individuals from all faiths are welcomed and guided to excel at their chosen vocation.
