The Jack H. Brown College of Business and Public Administration is committed to nurturing a high quality educational environment that promotes student, faculty, and staff success in its pursuit of academic excellence and achievement. We seek to transform the lives of our students and alumni by ensuring that they become responsible management professionals within a dynamic region and a globally connected world. We strive to be a regionally, nationally, and internationally recognized educational institution that serves our students, community, and alumni by providing more than a classroom experience. We emphasize teaching, partnerships/service to our region, and research in business and public administration. Our Mission and Vision are supported by a set of shared values that form the foundation of all our activities. These are not presented in order of preference or significance – we view all values as equally important: Love of learning, love of innovation, love of identity, love of place, and love of purpose.
