We believe education should be accessible, dynamic, and affordable.
The mission of Signum University is to establish an open and globally accessible digital campus that reduces student costs, provides a vibrant, online academic community that fosters exceptional teaching and opportunities for intellectual engagement, and ensures fair and generous treatment of our employees and students alike.
Signum’s mission is accomplished through the application of the university’s core values as described below.
Education is interactive and informative.
Signum University believes a strong learning community is one in which students and professors can grow together in a context of high-quality academics. The University’s virtual campus is designed to make that community a reality, delivering both the relational and academic components of a true liberal arts education.
Online education is valuable.
Signum University embraces the flexibility and richness of online education. Its learning environment incorporates both traditional and state-of-the-art educational models to provide a dynamic platform that is accessible to anyone with an internet connection. The University continuously invests in this campus to develop Signum’s innovative academic opportunities.
Excellent education is affordable.
Signum University offers affordable education. It believes everyone who desires to learn should afford to invest in their education. With this belief in mind, the University matches its accessible platform with attainable tuition so that more people might benefit from continued, and even lifelong, education.
Rewarding education is accomplished through teamwork.
Signum University fosters an amicable and productive relationship between faculty and staff to the enrichment of all. Its philosophy requires that faculty and staff work together with students, using a team-oriented approach focusing on individual responsibility and gifts, to create an exceptional learning experience. Signum also believes that, given this approach, staff and faculty should be rewarded in full for the work they accomplish.
Lasting education is thorough.
Signum University helps its students pursue their chosen area of study through online education. As part of this vision, the University teaches students how to interact with academics, personalize their curricula, and communicate meaningfully with peers and colleagues, all with the goal of contributing to their fields of research now and in the future.
Diversity is a strength, particularly in academic fields. Our diversity should give us the perspective we need to challenge established ways of thought and to strengthen or change modes of behavior. Without diversity in our academic institutions, much of this valuable perspective would be lost. Signum University admits students, staff, and faculty of any race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation or identification, genetic information, marital status, disability, age, or military status to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students, staff, and faculty at the school.
Signum University personnel and students will be evaluated by and dealt with according to standards of academic and administrative ability, and never by considerations of race, religion, national identity, gender identity, sexual orientation, genetic information, marital status, disability, age, or status as a U.S. military veteran. Signum University will not allow any such consideration to affect the administration or academic procedures of the institution.
Participation in events sponsored by Signum University will be equally open to all individuals that may or may not be included in one or more of the above groups. Neither discrimination against members of these groups, nor denial of benefits to members of these groups based on any such consideration will be tolerated.
