About Northern Arizona University


NAU began as a teachers’ college, and our commitment to building a better tomorrow through education remains our highest priority. Our students, mentored by faculty members who are renowned in their fields, are at the center of all we do.

In the classroom and online, through hands-on experiences in an unparalleled learning environment, and with the NAU community cheering them on, our students discover and hone their ambitions.
