Abilene Christian University (ACU) has recently received national publicity in an article published by Wired which recognizes ACU as changing the way students are educated.

ACU launched a pilot which gave every freshman a free iPhone or iPod Touch. The idea was to engage students by integrating the technology they use most with their education. Bill Rankin, Associate Professor of English and Director of Educational Innovation at ACU, believes that this is the next platform for education.

As a leader in innovative education, ACU was ranked #1 in a category saluting innovation by U.S. News & World Report and was a winner of Campus Technology's 2008 Innovator Award for mobile learning.

The result? Success. Students are being prepared for the real world and are more engaged in their education. As students are changing, ACU is reacting.

In addition, ACU is responding to the evolving needs of students by offering graduate degrees in an online format. Designed for the busy professional, the online programs offered include:

Master of Education degrees in:
Leadership of Learning
Curriculum and Instruction
Leadership of Digital Learning
Special Education

Masters in Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation

Masters in Organizational and Human Resource Development
