Mission and Values

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.

Fall colors

As pioneers, our centuries-long commitment to achieving excellence in liberal arts education is guided by five essential values.

  • Integrity

  • Innovation

  • Diversity

  • Community

  • Perseverance

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.
