The shelf life of new knowledge is getting shorter, people are living longer, and expanded populations of learners are seeking a college education and development that requires new ways to access affordable learning across their lives and careers. Our new model for academic and learner success adapts to these changes to catalyze social mobility and provide a diverse workforce for the future.
We will provide access to high-quality, relevant education at every stage of life and career—from 17 to 117 years old. As a research university in the heart of a great city with abundant occasions for real-life learning and working, we will guarantee experiential learning opportunities for every student.
With nationally ranked programs and a commitment to providing more affordable pathways to degrees and credentials, we will build critical thinking skills and further position learners for success of their design.
Acknowledging that today’s learners need education to work in the practical reality of their lives, we will provide flexible and stackable undergraduate, graduate, and certificate programs accessible to them whenever and wherever they seek it over their lifetimes.
Recognizing the diverse goals and dreams each learner holds, we will not just grant degrees—we will meet learners where they are and treat each learner as a whole person to collaboratively design lives of personal, professional, and social meaning.
