Our Mission

Our mission is to prepare leader-servants in the workplace and the world, in the community and the church, and in the home.

We serve faithful members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and welcome all who live our values.

We accomplish our mission by providing the finest undergraduate education available in letters, arts, and sciences within a wholesome Latter-day Saint environment.

Students, faculty, and staff at Southern Virginia University are committed to being academically or professionally accomplished, spiritually rooted, service oriented, and self-reliant.

We embody Southern Virginia's core values, which are scholarship, discipleship, accountability, enthusiasm, and refinement.

Southern Virginia University seeks to establish a replicable self-sustaining model of higher education that can serve Latter-day Saints throughout the world.
