About Jacksonville University


Mission

The Mission of Jacksonville University is to prepare each student for life-long success in learning, achieving, leading and serving. This mission will be accomplished as a small, comprehensive, independent university community located within a vibrant urban setting. The University serves an ethnically and geographically diverse, predominately undergraduate student body, as well as adult learners in undergraduate, masters, doctorate, and professional certification programs.

The Jacksonville University learning community will provide personalized service, close student-faculty interaction and an extensive array of educational and co-curricular programs. Our learning experience will emphasize engaged learning, the integration of thinking with doing, and the combination of professional preparation with a strong liberal arts foundation. 

Founded more than 80 years ago, Jacksonville University has more than 18,000 alumni. With students from 44 states and 55 foreign countries, the university offers seven bachelor’s degrees in more than 70 areas.
