Meet Our President
Dr. James B. Epting
North Greenville University is truly God's University and we are proud to be committed to quality education in a biblically sound, Christ-centered environment. All of our faculty and staff are Christians and are allowing Jesus Christ to make the difference through them on and off of our campus. At the present time we have over 35 four-year majors and a graduate school with 2 majors. We have approximately 75 percent of our faculty with their doctorates and our student to faculty class size is 15 to 1. We have students who are becoming doctors, lawyers, ministers, missionaries, journalists, teachers, business men and women, musicians, and many other occupations. We strive for every student to grow stronger spiritually, socially, mentally, and physically.
Most importantly, we have over 300 students each year accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Also, we are always ranked as one of the top schools for student summer missionaries among all public and private schools in the nation.
Our facilities are the best and we have built over $40 million worth of new and renovated buildings without borrowing any funds, which has allowed us to keep our cost low compared to other schools. Therefore, because of our good stewardship, we consider North Greenville University to be the best value in the South.
North Greenville University is a unique place for students. Being seated in God's country, the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and near three great cities, Greenville, Greer and Traveler's Rest, we can enjoy the best of all worlds – the tranquility of a small university setting and the hustle and bustle of city life.
We remain committed to Jesus Christ and South Carolina Baptists. The University is prospering because of the financial assistance of the South Carolina Baptist Convention through the Cooperative Program and the faithfulness of our many alumni and friends in their giving to the University.
Please continue to pray for us as we try to remain committed to quality education in a biblically sound, Christ-centered environment. We do want to be a place where Christ makes the difference.
Remember, a North Greenville University education is more than just going to class. It is about the heart as well as the mind. When the student comes here, we want each one to either get saved for the first time in their life, or if they're already saved, to grow stronger in their walk and graduate.
We promise to remain passionate about all of the above.
