MESSAGE FROM THE CHANCELLOR FOR NATIONAL UNIVERSITY Dear Student, It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the National University family of dedicated faculty and staff, an exceptional student body, and over 150,000 alumni. We are excited to support you in reaching your educational goals and we are committed to delivering an exceptional student experience. National University is a private nonprofit university that has distinguished itself by offering market-relevant degrees through innovative programs that enable graduates to lead effective change in their communities. As part of National University, you join an even larger community of students who are part of the National University System. Together we share a common approach to learning and fostering student success while creating new and exciting pathways for your educational future. Since the creation of the National University System, we continue to build on the foundation that National University laid in 1971 when it began its pioneering work serving adult learners in new and creative formats. Today, NUS is comprised of: • National University: The founding institution, which continues to provide innovative educational solutions to adults and military veterans • City University of Seattle: Emphasizes master’s and doctoral degrees, while establishing choice through competency-based and international programs • John F. Kennedy University: Focuses on community and social justice, largely through differentiated graduate and doctoral programs in psychology and law • The Division of Pre-College Programs: Fosters the success of the next generation of K-12 learners through the National University Academy and the National University Virtual High School The System also oversees the Sanford Education Programs, three programs inspired by the vision of renowned philanthropist T. Denny Sanford to address critical needs in the education and nonprofit sectors. Sanford Harmony and Sanford Inspire provide innovative resources for the PreK-12 education sector and the Sanford Institute of Philanthropy offers educational programs to help nonprofits become more effective at fundraising and donor relationships. Connected by shared values of service and community, the affiliates of the National University System serve students in ways that meet their individual needs through accessibility to high-quality programs that incorporate current research, the latest technological advances, and teachings that are relevant to the real world. The System’s network of complementary universities offer pathways for students to attain professional and terminal degrees, while recognizing and maximizing the value of faculty, staff, and partners, and maintaining a true commitment to the community. As graduates can attest, an education from a National University System affiliate provides the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed and lead in today’s ever-changing environment. Thank you for choosing National University and Welcome! Sincerely,

MICHAEL R. CUNNINGHAM, Ph.D. Chancellor National University System

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT FOR NATIONAL UNIVERSITY

Dear Student, On behalf of the Board of Trustees, faculty, staff, alumni and your fellow students, it is my pleasure to welcome you to National University. We are so pleased that you have chosen to pursue your academic goals with us, and to become part of our transformational community of lifelong learners. The demand for graduates with a strong academic foundation and superior market-relevant skills has never been stronger. At National University, we are committed to guiding students toward achieving their education and career goals. Remaining true to our mission, we continue to identify innovative programs, services and academic pathways to prepare students for today’s dynamic, ever-changing workplace. Founded in 1971, National University was among the first institutions in the United States to recognize and focus on the unique educational needs of non-traditional learners. Today, National University is among the largest private nonprofit institutions of higher learning in California. The University is unique because of its intensive one-course-per-month format, regional campuses, and flexible degree programs which enable students to complete their degree programs in an accelerated time frame. Our goal is to deliver an exceptional student experience, ensuring that the education you receive is among the most rigorous, relevant, and rewarding in higher learning. In addition to our focus on quality, innovation and access, we also believe in encouraging collaborations that serve the public good and look for ways to weave that into our offerings. With roots as a technology leader, National University remains focused on providing students state-of-the-art learning experiences, including high-tech classrooms and a library with one of the largest collections of e-books in the United States. The University offers more than 100 programs that are available either completely or partially online, allowing students locally, nationally, and globally to pursue a broad range of degrees and credentials. We are enriched not only by the extraordinary, diverse faculty and staff, but also by our unique student population that represents a wide range of backgrounds from working professionals to military personnel. Our commitment to providing the support and resources to meet students’ needs remains our top priority. We are proud to offer additional resources through partnerships, programs and scholarships to assist students in achieving their goals. The Student Concierge Service and Veteran Center are focused on your needs throughout the year and can assist you in many ways, including acting as a liaison with other units in the University, as an advocate for you as you navigate the University’s processes and programs, and as a central source of quality assurance. National University Career Services offers students and alumni support with identifying and fulfilling career goals. National University is proud of what it has accomplished in the past 46 years, and we look forward to sharing an even more distinguished future with you as we continue to seek new and better ways to address your needs as a student and lifelong learner. I wish you the best of luck and much success.
