Liberty University is the largest private non-profit university in the nation, the largest university in Virginia, and the largest Christian university in the world. Liberty was founded in 1971 by my father, the late Dr. Jerry Falwell, Sr., with a vision to train Champions for Christ as a world class university. Liberty University’s greatest asset is its students and their school spirit, enthusiasm, strong character and motivation. Behind these successful students are parents who are valued for their supportive role.
