Nearly a century ago our founders envisioned a Christ-centered University that would make a profound difference in the world. Their resolute faith, keen sacrifice and enduring spirit has paved the way for us today. It is that legacy we remember and honor as we celebrate 100 years of Harding and look forward to a bold future. Harding University’s Centennial Celebration will commence in September 2023, followed by a yearlong observance culminating on Harding’s 100th birthday in September 2024.
