As the most student-centric university in the world, WGU goes beyond convention to identify, develop, and implement programs, systems, and technologies that pave the path to opportunity for all. Our mission is to change lives for the better by creating pathways to opportunity.
Too many people have felt that education was out of their reach. Distance, cost, and life situations led them to believe that education was unattainable. From our inception we have taken these barriers to education head-on so our students have access to the surest way to change their lives for the better—a degree.
Although our university has grown and our focus has widened, our single commitment to our students has not. Our ambition to help individuals bridge the gap from talent to opportunity will never rest.
