Victory University, formerly Crichton College, was a private Christian, liberal arts college located in Memphis, Tennessee.

Victory University educates students in a Christ-centered liberal arts community to think critically, grow spiritually, and change our world.

What would become Victory University was founded as the Mid-South Bible Center in 1944. In short order the institution transitioned into the Mid-South Bible Institute with a non-credit Adult Education Program and a one-year Basic Bible Course. A four-year Bible college program was initiated in 1958 and the institution again changed its name in 1960 to Mid-South Bible College. Eleven years later, the institution earned accreditation from the Association of Biblical Higher Education. The institution continued to grow and in 1982 it began a Teacher Education program to "prepare Christian men and women to teach in schools." Following the addition of majors in traditional disciplines in the social and natural sciences, education, and music, the institution gained accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools in 1986. In 1987, the institution again changed its name, this time to Crichton College to honor its long-time president James B. Crichton who died in 1984. The institution relocated twice between 1987 and 2002, for a time sharing a campus local megachurch Central Church before moving to its current location on Highland Avenue in 2002. During 2009, Dr. John M. Borek, Jr. was appointed President and California-based Significant Federation bought the financially troubled institution, which became a for-profit business. One year later, the college changed its name to Victory University. Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee was given the title of Chancellor and became a fundraiser for the institution, although Huckabee did not take up residence in Memphis. The financial troubles continued to plague the university and it abruptly announced in March of 2014 that the spring semester of 2014 would be its last semester and the university would be closing.
