Mission Statement 

Inclusion, diversity, equity, and access are central to the success of University College. It is integral to “fostering scholarship and critical inquiry while providing equal access to all students, and helping them develop as engaged global citizens” (from University College’s Mission and Vision page). We welcome the varied perspectives, experiences, backgrounds, and knowledge that are brought to us by our faculty, staff, students, and campus partners. The essence of an enriched educational experience lies in our ability to create learning opportunities and foster respect in the classroom and beyond in order to empower all community members to contribute.
