Liberty University was founded by Jerry Falwell in 1971, and it has grown to 20,000 students. In addition to its undergraduate and graduate programs, it also has a seminary and law school. It is located in Lynchburg, Virginia.

The university is explicitly organized to promote a fundamentalist religious viewpoint. According to the university's website:

Liberty’s professors integrate a Christian worldview into every subject area. This biblical foundation is the cornerstone upon which we build academic excellence. Our faculty hold degrees from more than 400 colleges and universities. They join Liberty only after completing a rigorous interview process that confirms a born-again relationship with Christ, a clear understanding of the Purpose and Aims of Liberty, and a commitment to teaching excellence.
