At our core, we are a teaching and research university and have a long history of providing exceptional and innovative undergraduate and graduate education. Driven by our Meliora values, we are always striving to make our academic programs, student experiences, and campus community ever better. Students and their families choose the University of Rochester because they have an expectation that we will prepare them to face challenges that will be different and more uncertain than those faced by previous generations. Our society needs institutions that position their graduates to live and work with diverse people with different life experiences and perspectives, rapidly adapt to changing communities and work environments, and possess an ability to continuously learn and grow.
We will continue to evolve and enhance the student experience so that we develop leaders, citizens of the world, and learners who live our Meliora values, positively impacting the world once they leave the University. We face a rapidly changing future of education, society, and vocation that demands adaptable, nimble leaders. We are committed to ensuring that our graduates are prepared to thrive and lead.
