American Northwest University believes in enabling students to think for themselves instead “spoon-feeding” every  expected from professors and echoing what fellow students/colleagues say. For every handful of students, there is a professor or doctor to help discover novel information, reconsider theories and opinions once taken for granted.

There is much more to ANU instruction than the “chalk and talk” approach many experience in the high school setting. Our professors expect students to speak up in class, contribute to original ideas and question perceived assumptions. The lively intellectual exchanges taking place in our classrooms nurture academic prosperity in all sorts of minds.

ANU faculty members are truly dedicated instructors, professors, doctors and active researchers that contribute to an academic environment for perpetuation of those same kinds. Our professors belong to top organizations, lead national academic groups and are regularly recognized for their scholarly contributions. Most have doctoral degrees, and nearly half of our professors serve as mentors and personal advisers.
