Southern Adventist University is a college in Collegedale, Tennessee, owned and operated by the Southern Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. U.S. News & World Report categorizes it as a Southern Regional College, and the magazine has consistently ranked it as one of the top-tier schools in that category. Southern Adventist University occupies a 1,000 acres (4.0 km2) campus in a rural setting in the Tennessee River Valley.

It was founded in 1892 in Graysville, Tennessee, as Graysville Academy and was the first Adventist school in the southern U.S. Due to the need for additional space for expansion the school relocated in 1916 and was renamed Southern Junior College. In 1944 Southern began awarding baccalaureate degrees and was renamed Southern Missionary College. In 1996 the institution started conferring Masters degrees and adopted its current name.

Southern offers baccalaureate, associate and master's degrees. It is accredited by multiple organizations including the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Its Institute of Archaeology offers an undergraduate degree in biblical archaeology; Southern is one of only two schools which offer the degree. It is known for its emphasis on conservative religious and social practices, and is considered the most conservative of the Seventh-day Adventist schools in North America. The college operates a radio station (WSMC-FM), a health-food store and a wellness center. Enrollment was 3,053 students in 2010, its highest level to date.
