Our focus on student success and an environment in which every university decision is made relative to its impact on students has resulted in improvements in retention and graduation rates and greater student engagement in high-impact experiences.

Provide an inclusive and engaged living-learning environment where all students thrive and graduate as informed citizens committed to a life of impact

Our top priority is to ensure that students have the education, experiences and support they need to graduate and to live successful, satisfying lives in their work and in their commitment to become engaged citizens. Attention to academic quality and student success is a cornerstone of a students-first environment. This focus begins with the strategic recruitment of talented and diverse students and continues with the commitment to support students as they learn to thrive in an academically challenging environment.
