The mission of USIU-A is to promote the discovery and application of knowledge, the acquisition of skills and the development of intellect and character in a manner that prepares students to contribute effectively and ethically as citizens of a changing and increasingly technological world. The USIU-A mission is achieved through selected high quality undergraduate and graduate academic programs which result in the following mission outcomes:
  • High order thinking: The ability to collect, analyze and evaluate information and formulate conclusions. Students develop and demonstrate the ability to think critically, analytically and creatively.
  • Literacy: Competence in oral, written, quantitative, and technological skills. Students develop and demonstrate competency in oral and written communication as well as demonstrate scientific, quantitative and technological literacy.
  • Global understanding and multicultural perspective: Awareness, knowledge and appreciation of both the diversity and commodity of cultures. Students acquire these perspectives through formal study of languages, history, literature and the arts and through working, studying and living cooperatively in a radically, ethnically, and culturally diverse environment. Further, students acquire an understanding of economic, historical, political, geographic and environmental relationships on a global basis.
  • Preparedness for career:  Mastery of a field of knowledge and its multi-cultural and multinational application. Such mastery is accomplished through both formal study and various experienced forms of learning such as internships and field experiences.
  • Community service and development: A sense of being part of a community and a desire to be of service to it. Students are given opportunities to participate in community service, citizenship, or social action projects or activities.
  • Leadership and ethics: As part of their growth and development, students formulate and articulate the ethical standards which will guide their professional and personal lives.
