The University of Atlanta

Where New Intellectual Journeys Begin

A university of standing, currently in a mode of enhancement and expansion, U of A surges forward: a recently-appointed leadership team of recognized specialists; a top-tier internationally-recruited faculty (academicians and field experts of acclaim who manifest both a passion for higher learning and a proven commitment to student success), in conjunction with new initiatives for 2018-2020 (including expanded curricular options at the undergraduate and graduate levels; inauguration of professional doctoral programs; enhanced interactivity among program participants; augmented global affiliations and collaborative partnerships; an ever-more powerful support system provided by all institutional departments and divisions; a broadened array of delivery models; and the establishment of learning-study-media centers in various regions of the globe) - notably signal the forward direction of the University and its unwavering commitment to excellence.

Strategic outreach initiatives have been specifically fashioned so as to substantiate that all programs are available and accessible to broad national and international student populations worldwide who manifest the desire and capacity for higher learning. A powerful, multi-faceted support system is in place to foster the success of students and to maximize the university experience.

A host of recently-developed initiatives (the new five-part University of Atlanta Monograph Series (sanctioned by, and registered with the US Library of Congress); the founding of a new journal, Virtualities: International Review of Distance Learning – Library of Congress ISSN: 1941-7373; the inauguration of a new annual symposium series on advances in the sphere of E-Learning; the naming of Provostial Fellows in recognition of outstanding achievement and promise; the development of a special scholarship program; and augmented accessibility across divisions) - signal the breadth and scope of the university’s vision, its unwavering commitment to the high-pitched standards, to accelerated momentum as well as its resolve to offer respected, intensive programs of first-tier caliber via the most progressive and effective modes of delivery.

The curriculum is marked by many distinctions, among them, a powerful commitment to communicative competence and to applied critical thinking (underscored in all courses, in all disciplines, at all levels) and a special emphasis on integrated global perspectives.

As a consequence of such diversity and cross-national emphasis, we become an enriched, value-added repository for expanded learning, wherein global perspectives and multi-cultural exchange flourish.

In and by our difference, we stand apart: distinctive in quality, devoted to the individual learner, contemporary in content and presentation, attuned to the issues of the day and to the needs of prospective students worldwide, seeking always to set each program participant on an intellectual journey into the future, yet committed unrelentingly to the core values that have always underpinned, and continue to underpin, the fundamentals of higher education.
