We are an urban dispersed "college without walls," passionate to introduce students to the world of ideas, prepare graduates for the world of work, and inspire alumni for a life well-lived. We seek to fulfill Christ's Great Commission (Matt 28:16-20) by bringing affordable and accredited higher education to underserved communities.
American Pathways University was inspired by a 1999 news broadcast of an Atlanta conference of U.S. urban minority leaders discussing the problem of inner-city public education. "If we are going to solve the problem of failed public education in our core cities, we are going to have to do it ourselves and pay for it ourselves." On September 10, 1999, seven inner-city Denver organizations met and entered into a compact to establish an affordable, accessible, and credible higher education institution for the city, of the city, and the by city. APU seeks to address underserved resident's educational needs so that they will enjoy the benefits of liberal arts education and career preparation, and that inner-city neighborhoods, businesses, and organizations will experience enhanced indigenous community resources and leadership.
