President Jo Young Switzer
Welcome to Manchester University, the university that transforms lives!
We invite you to explore our web site and to visit our campus – you'll sense the energy of Manchester University. Our students understand they need to prepare for their careers, and they also appreciate that new learning itself expands their lives.
What is so transforming about Manchester University?
But please, see for yourself! We hope you will schedule a visit soon to Manchester University, or roam our web site to learn about our academic programs, student activities, construction projects, study abroad, athletics, concerts, and more.
Service is a 124-years-strong commitment of the students and graduates of Manchester University. Our graduates are known worldwide for their ability and conviction. Their work is varied – surgery and medical service for the poor, auditing and tax consulting to nonprofit organizations, teaching in universities and in schools for disadvantaged children, solar and other research and local businesses, pro bono legal assistance to those who can't afford to pay an attorney and judgeships. Manchester University graduates are continually finding fresh ways to give back, to share, to accept the demands of responsible citizenship.
A key phrase in our Mission is to graduate persons of ability and conviction. That dual commitment is our transforming power. We hope this commitment incites you to learn more about Manchester University and to stay in touch.
