Mission and vision

Mission

The mission of Lynn University today is the same mission that has defined the institution through its first 50 years and that will continue to define it in the future.

Our mission is to provide the education, support and environment that enable individual students to realize their full potential and to prepare for success in the world.

Vision

Lynn’s vision is to be recognized as one of the most innovative, international and individualized small universities in America. Lynn University will capitalize on its youth, location and close student and faculty bonds to become a forerunner institution, a different kind of learning center, an independent, innovative 21st century university that is unusually devoted to preparing young persons for America’s and the world’s future. To do so, Lynn will:

  1. Remain relatively small, with approximately 2,400 undergraduate and 600 graduate students, and 500 or more adults enrolled annually in continuing education courses and institutes. A multi‐faceted, coeducational, primarily residential university with a small‐college atmosphere.
  2. Admit a wide array of diverse students, from those with learning differences to the gifted, and those from many countries of the world and states across the nation.
  3. Be grounded in the liberal arts but contain a collection of colleges oriented toward emerging professional opportunities, each of which feature superior teaching, applied learning and international focus and experiences.
  4. Contain a hallmark student development program that discerns each student’s strengths, shortcomings and special needs and works to develop his or her full capabilities.
