Mission and Vision


In support of Mississippi Valley State University's mission to promote academic excellence and student learning, University College facilitates first-year students' acclimation and smooth transition to the university.  The initiatives led by University College foster engagement and help students develop academic and life skills essential for success as college students and global citizens.  While first year students are the primary focus of University College, many programs and services are made available to all students who seek academic support during their journey at Mississippi Valley State University.


University College will strive to be recognized as the campus leader in designing programs and services that ultimately impact retention, increase student engagement, and promote students' academic, social, and personal development.
