Programs are where professors and students engage to form the heart of the Madison Experience

Whether in the classroom, through undergraduate research and leadership activities, your investment to support programs will ensure that students and professors collaborate in the engaged learning experiences for which JMU is known.  These engaged learning, community engagement and civic engagement experiences are part of JMU’s vision to become the national model of the engaged university.
