The Ozarks Mission

True to our Christian heritage, we prepare those who seek to live life fully, those who seek the richness of life provided by study of the liberal arts and the quality of life provided by professional preparation.

We provide a uniquely supportive, academically sophisticated and challenging environment on a beautiful campus adjacent to the Ozark Mountains. Our first priority is the education of students who come to us from diverse religious, cultural, educational, and economic backgrounds.


  • Student Intellectual Development: Stimulate the students intellectually through a full offering of studies in the liberal arts and professional preparation in selected areas.
  • Student Social Development: Promote student interaction on campus and in the community, capitalizing on the university's setting in the beautiful Ozarks.
  • Student Spiritual Development: Encourage students both to learn and to practice Christian values, while respecting individual beliefs.
  • Student Support: Support students and the growth of the university through following sound financial strategies.

The University of the Ozarks commits its administration, faculty, students, and programs to the fulfillment of its mission.
