Hope’s main campus is located in Orange County, in the city of Fullerton, California.

The Cross

A beautiful cobalt blue cross is depicted next to our logo on the signage on the north end of our Fullerton campus. The cross has a unique design that aligns itself with the Googie architecture of our buildings and was modeled after a design by acclaimed artist and architectural sculptor, Randall E. Secrest. Secrest's original piece is a large stained glass window in the sanctuary of Chaparral Christian Church in Scottsdale, Arizona. The striking color of the cross invites viewers to reflect on the greatness of Christ.

ADMINISTRATION
John Derry, Ed.D. has served as president of Hope International University since 2003.
