Established in 1857, Mansfield University’s tradition of academic excellence is exemplified in its liberal arts and science programs, as well as professional programs in business, education, nursing, and criminal justice. Mansfield University engages and challenges students, preparing them to be successful in today’s extremely competitive environment where a graduate’s experience and marketability expands professional and career opportunities. Our students are taught by accomplished faculty that prepare students for careers and advanced studies that reinforce four Core Values that have been a part of the University’s Creed since 1912: Character, Scholarship, Culture, and Service.
Mansfield University students gain experience both in and out of the classroom. Students have boundless opportunities to work individually with their professors on important projects and hands-on research. The University has agreements with over 400 employers offering our students internship and career experiences in their chosen fields. The success and accomplishments of our graduates is the best illustration of the limitless possibilities available to our current and future students.
Our many clubs, organizations, and volunteer opportunities are offered to get you involved with other students and the community. Study abroad programs offer exchanges with 150 universities in 50 countries and unique opportunities to travel and learn alongside your professors. In addition, Mansfield has an outstanding history of strong athletic programs, with student athletes collecting honors at the state and national levels.
The Mansfield family is home to talented scholars, inspiring artists, exceptional athletes, dynamic professionals, and exceptional students. I invite you to visit our beautiful 174-acre campus and experience first-hand the strong sense of community that flourishes in the positive relationships among our faculty, students, and community partners.
