In honor of General Anthony Wayne, Waynesburg University was founded in 1849 as Waynesburg College by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church - now affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) - and was chartered by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 1850.[1]

Waynesburg University is located on a contemporary campus in the hills of southwestern Pennsylvania, with three adult centers located in the Pittsburgh regions of Southpointe, Cranberry and Monroeville.

Hanna Hall and Miller Hall are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[2]


At Waynesburg University, people care for one another like family. It is a place where the spirit of a Christian community truly exists. Students have the option to choose to participate in:

  • Weekly chapel services
  • Bible studies
  • Contemporary, student-led weekly worship services
  • Speakers who engage students to integrate faith, learning and service
  • Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA)
  • Faith and Services Mission Trips

Faculty and staff profess belief in Jesus Christ and come from various Christ-centered denominational backgrounds. The exploration of faith is encouraged on Waynesburg's campus, but at the discretion of the student.

Waynesburg welcomes students on any part of their journey into its Christian community.

Students may also choose to be involved in various campus ministries. For example, becoming a Christian Ministry Assistant (CMA). CMAs are student leaders who serve our community by creating Bible studies and building intentional relationships across campus that enhance the mission of Waynesburg University.


Waynesburg University is built around 4 spacious parks owned by the town of Waynesburg. The westernmost park contains a bridge meandering through the trees; the next park features a gazebo; and the 2 parks nearest the University center are commonly referred to as the Fountain Park and the Statue Park.

Stover Center for Constitutional Studies and Moral Leadership

Waynesburg University’s Stover Center for Constitutional Studies and Moral Leadership is an interdisciplinary scholarly center dedicated to bringing insights from the U.S. Constitution’s Founding Era and from Christianity to bear in the contemporary public square, with the ultimate goal of creatively transforming the ethical state of the polis.

The Center brings Stover Constitutional Fellows and other illustrious guest speakers to campus and offers a rich array of experiences to a select group of students designated as Stover Scholars. These experiences include special seminars, visits with notable government officials, and internships in the fields of government, law, and public policy.

The Founder and His Vision

The Stover Center reflects the vision and commitment of Dr. W. Robert Stover, a Waynesburg University trustee and alumnus.

In 2006, Dr. Stover approached Waynesburg University’s president, Timothy Thyreen, with the idea of launching the center. Motivated by concerns about the direction in which he saw the nation moving, Dr. Stover sought to create a program in moral leadership based around the Constitution and its principles. It was his hope to prepare students for success as lawyers, elected officials, and leaders in society who would understand the important role the Constitution has held in shaping our country.

Building on Dr. Stover’s inspiration, a committee comprising members of the Waynesburg University faculty and community, along with Dr. Stover and his wife, Joan, developed the plan for the Center and its Stover Scholars program.

Dr. Stover committed to providing the University with funding to support scholarships, to host guest speakers, and to establish the Stover Center for Constitutional Studies and Moral Leadership section in the university’s library.

A 1942 Waynesburg graduate, Dr. Stover earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Natural Science. He went on to study at the University of Illinois and the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania. During World War II, he served in the United States Navy.

Later, Dr. Stover became a pioneer of the temporary help services industry, founding Western Temporary Services in 1948. He served as chairman and chief executive officer of the company. Under his leadership, it diversified to provide non-clerical temporary help services in the marketing, medical, industrial, and technical fields through more than 200 offices in the U.S. and overseas.
