  Message from the President

 

Welcome to Wilmington University.

It is our mission to offer quality education to all who seek it. We are committed to academic excellence both in the classroom and online, and our dedicated faculty creates and teaches relevant and affordable career-oriented programs that are conveniently scheduled. We believe strongly in treating each student respectfully and individually.

The enthusiastic involvement of our Board of Trustees sets the bar high for our administrators, faculty, staff and alumni. The Wilmington University community extends well beyond the state of Delaware. We have physical presences also in Maryland and New Jersey, and students around the country and abroad attend our online programs.

We provide our students with the solid academic foundations, practical skills, and "real-world" opportunities they need to advance in their professions and lead their communities. We encourage them to participate actively in innovative programs that require effort, challenge critical thinking, provide solid career preparation and instill ethical values.

There are many ways to learn about the exciting things Wilmington University has to offer: Explore our website; register for an information session—online or face-to-face; call our University Information Center; or stop by one of our locations. However you choose to connect, a caring and courteous professional will assist you.

Wilmington University is a place where you can realize your potential as you seek intellectual challenges and personal fulfillment. It is our great hope that you will also discover a love for and commitment to lifelong learning.

Sincerely,
Dr. LaVerne T. Harmon
President
