Through an engagement with the liberal arts, Transylvania University prepares its students for a humane and fulfilling personal and public life by cultivating independent thinking, open-mindedness, creative expression, and commitment to lifelong learning and social responsibility in a diverse world.
As pioneers, our centuries-long commitment to achieving excellence in liberal arts education is guided by five essential values.
These values define our character and inform all that we do. Our constant touchstone, they inspired and molded the ambitious seven-year strategic plan the Transylvania community embraced in 2013.
Transylvania University admits students regardless of age, race, color, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, veteran status, national origin, or any other classification protected by federal or state law or local ordinance.
