We are a community committed to preparing students to be educated and
enlightened citizens who lead productive and meaningful lives.
— JMU mission statement
You'll find that all of campus echoes a consistent theme. From the JMU Board of Visitors, to the president's office, to each department and office on campus, there is an enduring commitment to put students first. To prepare them to become the leaders of the future. To inspire them to be the change.
The administration of a university committed to such goals carries a great deal of responsibility. That trust is taken seriously. At this site, you’ll find links that provide information about JMU administrators, the policies they enact and the way they plan and measure progress.
“Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.”
