We believe that God has called us to reach every corner of every campus.
Change the university, change the world.
For over 75 years InterVarsity has had a vital presence on hundreds of college campuses, courageously proclaiming Jesus as Lord and Savior, engaging in discipleship around Scripture, and loving people of every ethnicity and culture.
Students make choices during their 4 years of college that lay the foundation for the next 40 years of their lives.
We know that 70% of churchgoing young adults stop attending church regularly between ages 18 and 22.
That’s why InterVarsity campus ministers and student leaders are on over 680 campuses, connecting students and faculty to Christ.
We are seeing over
students and faculty come
to Christ each week!
We have developed
world changers as
followers of Jesus.
We’ve been on campus for over
years, and are one of the oldest
campus ministries with a large presence.
Our vision is to see students and faculty transformed, campuses renewed, and world changers developed.
Our chapters exist to serve the campus.
We welcome students into caring, diverse communities where they can build friendships and explore Christian faith in the marketplace of ideas.
At many campuses we have more than one chapter, which may include separate outreaches to international students, nursing students, sororities and fraternities, athletes, artists, and ethnic minority groups, as well as faculty and career-specific graduate student chapters.
