A Distinctively Global, Integrative, Personal 
Learning Experience

What are the core values that make Arcadia University distinctive—the values that persuade students to choose Arcadia over its competitors and to remain at the University through graduation?

Arcadia's commitment to students includes opportunities to explore global perspectives, integrate theory with real world experiences, and benefit from the personal attention that is the hallmark of Arcadia's learning community.

Through impressive collaboration, the Arcadia campus community has distilled the University's traditional strengths and values into a document called The Arcadia University Promise.

The Arcadia Promise affirms that students will have a distinctively global, integrative and personal learning experience that prepares them to contribute and prosper in a diverse and dynamic world. The Arcadia Promise sums up the collective experiences of generations of alumni and the collective efforts of the faculty and staff who create Arcadia's distinguished learning environment. Arcadia students are challenged to achieve their full potential and recognize their ability and responsibility to make choices that affect the future of their world. Whether they pursue an undergraduate, graduate or continuing education path, they are part of a mutually supportive community. Through interactions with faculty, staff and peers representing a diversity of cultural backgrounds, they gain self-confidence and respect for others, learn by using the latest technologies, and acquire essential skills and knowledge that prepare them for a rich and meaningful life.
