Vision Statement

West Chester University's Division of Academic Affairs offers outstanding curricula for undergraduate, post-baccalaureate and graduate students and a variety of educational and cultural resources for students, alumni, and citizens of southeastern Pennsylvania. Our strengths are evidenced by a general education program grounded firmly in the liberal arts and sciences tradition, by excellent teacher-preparation programs, and by an array of professional and liberal arts and sciences programs. Above all, WCU is committed to providing a rich learning environment for all students.

As a university owned by the citizens of Pennsylvania, we value our mission to provide the best educational opportunities possible which will enable our students to successfully address the concerns of a global society. To meet these objectives we provide responsive advising for students, developmental student programming, and instruction that emphasizes critical thinking, knowledge of and respect for diversity, and effective communication.

We are committed to excellence in serving our students and helping them to excel in their academic endeavors while valuing the contributions that they bring to the University community.

This Academic Affairs Web site also includes resources to help students make the most of their time at the University.
