Ashland University is a mid-sized regional teaching and religious university, historically related to the Brethren Church. The mission of Ashland University is to serve the educational needs of all students -- undergraduate and graduate, traditional and non-traditional, full- and part-time -- by providing educational programs of high quality in an environment that is both challenging and supportive.

These educational programs emphasize both the importance of the liberal arts and sciences and the need to provide initial and advanced preparation in selected professional areas -- including business, education, and theology -- which enables students to lead meaningful and productive lives in the world community.

The educational and social environment of Ashland University is built upon a long-standing commitment to Judeo-Christian values at this religious university and a tradition that stresses the importance of each individual. In this environment, the members of the Ashland University community continually seek ways to challenge and support each other to develop intellectually, spiritually, socially, culturally and physically.
