Lynn’s 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.
Lynn is one of the most innovative, international and individualized small universities in the country. The university capitalizes on its size, location and close student and faculty bonds to be a forerunner institution, an independent, 21st century university that is devoted to preparing students for the future. In order to do so, Lynn’s strategy is to:
- Remain relatively small, with approximately 2,400 undergraduate and 600 graduate students, and 500 or more adults enrolled annually to maintain a multifaceted, coeducational, primarily residential university with a small college atmosphere.
- 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.
- 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.
- Contain a hallmark student development program that discerns each student’s strengths, shortcomings and special needs to help develop his or her full capabilities.
