To be relevant in the 21st Century, Marshall University must produce value that
is evident to our students and the communities we serve. That value must
be manifest in various ways, including the intellectual work that can be
performed by our graduates – their creativity, their adaptability, their
capacity to continue to learn, their ability to think futuristically,
their marketability in a rapidly evolving, global economy and the
intellectual capital they contribute to society.
We must solve the
integrate what we know about human learning and capitalize on the vast
potential afforded by technology to create greater public value by
advancing the productivity and quality of thinking and learning achieved
by students, and do so at lower cost, while expanding access to college
to a much larger cross-section of society.
