In 1886, a group of visionary educators and business leaders saw the need for a higher education institution focused on career-based training to meet workforce needs in the southeastern United States. Together they founded what is now known as American National University(1) with the intent of training workers in business, banking, accounting, administration, and other skilled professions.

Toni Page-Mayberry, adjunct medical instructor at the South Bend Campus, is a full-time tissue bank coordinator with the Harper Cancer Research Institute (HCRI) at the University of Notre Dame (UND).  Early on a cold windy non-football Saturday morning, Toni gave the medical assisting and medical billing and coding students a special tour of the campus’s facility and laboratory.  It was fascinating to see the magnitude of scientific equipment provided to the researchers, faculty, and students from the University of Notre Dame and Indiana University of South Bend who are working in conjunction with the local medical community in a variety of areas. 


ANU Career Services is ready to assist you with career planning, career preparation, and career connections. As a student or alumni, you also have 24/7 access to ANU CareerConnect, our career services portal that provides career-related tools and resources essential to career success.


Housing services

American National University does not provide on-campus housing for students and encourages international students to experience full-immersion into the American culture by learning how to live off-campus. Once formally accepted into an ANU program, the Director of International Students will provide referral assistance for housing and apartments available in the local communities and will be available to help you throughout this process. 

Library services

The ANU Library strives to provide accessible, relevant resources and services in support of the University’s mission, goals and objectives.
