  • an institution offering classes on campus, off campus, and online for degree-seeking students and life-long learners;
  • a doctorate-granting research university where collaborative scholarship and creative activity enhance quality of life across the life span;
  • a source of innovation and leadership meeting social, economic, and environmental challenges in the Piedmont Triad, North Carolina, and beyond; and
  • a global university integrating intercultural and international experiences and perspectives into learning, discovery, and service.
