Bryan University



We believe in challenging the boundaries of traditional education and in liberating the innate greatness in people.

As a private institution with an 80-year track record of excellence, Bryan University’s mission is a commitment to our students, graduates, and employees. It’s a commitment to providing experiences that transform their lives for the better.

Through a series of research-based strategies, continuous innovation, and strategic industry partnerships, our mission includes revolutionizing the way students learn online and solving complex challenges in online education. We believe that online learning can be a desired and preferred educational experience.


Bryan University is a leading student experience innovator that delivers strong value with social impact.

Bryan University’s vision is achieved through three strategic imperatives:

  1. Deliver high student return on investment (ROI) across all activities through the student life cycle.
  2. Provide a high value, equitable, and inclusive experience to all students and employees.
  3. Identify diverse, sustainable revenue sources.

Our vision ensures that Bryan graduates are empowered with the self-efficacy, knowledge, and practical, productive skills that lead directly to professional careers. We provide an inclusive educational experience to our students, driven by a core belief that all students can succeed, regardless of their differing life experiences, cultural backgrounds, economic conditions, attitudes and beliefs, or personal characteristics.

Our vision encourages an employment culture where each of our employees is valued and respected. We celebrate our diversity, recognizing that our differences make us stronger.

Our vision requires a long-term focus on organizational sustainability. To this end, we seek diverse revenue sources based upon our core competencies, while staying true to our mission and organizational values.

We believe that our mission and vision will inspire greater societal impact by reducing inequity in higher education and increasing educational access and attainment. These broader impacts align with the objectives of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 8 to promote: “inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, and decent work for all,” in addition to Sustainable Development Goal 4 to: “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.” This also aligns with AchieveAZ60’s vision to develop a: “diverse, well-educated, highly-skilled workforce participating in a thriving economy.”

We believe that by pursuing this mission and vision with tenacious and urgent resolve, Bryan will attain a position within the higher education spectrum that is unique, respected, and worthy of emulation.
