The Grand Canyon University or GCU was founded way back in August of 1949 at Prescott, Arizona by Arizona Southern Baptist Convention. At that time this citadel of higher learning was known as the Grand Canyon College.
This institution is a privately owned, for-profit, Christian-based university. As a matter of fact, the 2018 student enrollment records showed that 20,000 students had enrolled for courses within campus.
On the other hand, there were a total of 70,000 students who enrolled for online courses. This earned GCU the enviable reputation of being the largest and most sort after Christian-based university on the planet.
