Academic & Spiritual Growth Opportunities

Special Learning Opportunities - We strive to bring opportunities to our students that they only would be able to experience here. We have multiple speakers series during which students can learn about entrepreneurship, research opportunities and much more. 
American Free Enterprise Day - Launched at PBA in 1984, American Free Enterprise Day is a tradition designed to celebrate the achievements of individuals who exemplify the best of America’s free enterprise system. Medals are awarded to a group of worthy individuals and we recognize a medalist of the year. Taking part in this tradition will open your eyes to how successful businessmen and women make decisions based on biblical principles.
Women of Distinction - For more than 20 years, PBA has recognized and honored women who cherish the notions of community and family, and want to preserve these sacred ideals for future generations. These accomplished women are recognized during our Women of Distinction Luncheon, with proceeds going toward a scholarship fund for deserving female students.
Office of Academic Research - With our focus firmly fixed on the future, Palm Beach Atlantic University is a community of creative, innovative and dedicated thinkers. Collectively, our highly respected faculty and students embrace combining our intellectual competencies with an adventurer’s spirit in order to help solve some of society’s most complex challenges and contribute to the advancement of knowledge.
Interdisciplinary Research Conference - The Interdisciplinary Research Conference is a celebration of scholarship, creative activity and student work in which the exchange of ideas is shared among all fields of inquiry. Students and faculty present their findings and express the outcomes of their learning in areas ranging from the hard sciences to the arts, service learning and literary criticism.
