Basketball Upset: Business as usual

by Bill Wyatt


The James Madison University men's basketball team just became the first #16 seed to knock off a #1 seed in the history of the NCAA tournament.  While the university is extremely proud of our team and their accomplishment today, doing hard things and changing the course of history is exactly what we set out to do here at JMU.  Equipped with the power that knowledge gives, JMU students, faculty and alumni work toward a brighter future in nearly every sector of global society.

We expand the world's knowledge through innovative and cutting-edge research, widely available to our undergraduates.

We explore new worlds through global-centric perspectives and study abroad programs.

We devise new ways to generate prosperity. We help those struggling with disease, poverty, handicaps or lack of opportunity through science, education and service.

With the mentoring of faculty whose first love is teaching, we help students fulfill their destinies.  JMU offers each student a future of significance — not an education of mere prestige, but an extraordinary education of exceptional scholarship, inventive thinking, unparalleled attention to the world community, a university-wide enthusiasm for teaching, and a commitment to student success.

And our alumni continue to demonstrate the unrestrained liberty of individuals to use their acquired knowledge to transform the world.
