University Mission

Mission

To educate, support and empower all students for success in work, learning and engagement in our communities and global society.

Vision

The vision of Herzing University is to be the lifelong learning partner for its students, employers, and communities in optimizing their economic and human potential.

Core Values: P.R.I.C.E. of Success

Herzing University’s educational and organizational philosophy was founded on core values that constitute the Herzing culture. These values are essential not only for personal development, but are also the foundation for a successful, meaningful career. These core values; professionalism, respect, integrity, caring, and engagement are encompassed in a framework called “P.R.I.C.E. of Success.” In order to help each student, develop and strengthen these qualities, they have been incorporated into the learning environment. Students are expected to exhibit these behaviors and attributes in all interactions, inside and outside of the classroom. Students who apply themselves and embody the P.R.I.C.E. of Success characteristics will more likely reach their full human potential.

These behaviors and attributes are also the foundation of our internal culture. Employees are expected to exhibit these qualities in their service to students and other daily functions. In doing so, we are building a culture that nurtures personal growth and potential. We lead by example for our students, enabling us to coach and mentor students in their own development of these behaviors and attributes.

Guiding Principles

The following principles guide the University in fulfilling our mission.

  1. Foster Our Core Values - Promote an educational and workplace culture that fosters professionalism, respect for others, personal responsibility and integrity, caring, and civic and community engagement among our students and employees.

  2. Optimize Human Potential - Sustain a positive and effective educational environment which optimizes the personal and professional potential of our students and employees, and which respects individual contributions and perspectives.

  3. Improve the Value Equation for Students - Continually improve the University’s high-quality educational programs to increase their value to students. Innovate to optimize students’ educational journeys and align learning outcomes with lifelong learning and workforce needs.

  4. Engage Students - Provide instructional and student-support services that create an engaging, caring, student-centered environment to facilitate student achievement of the defined learning outcomes, their educational goals, and their personal development.

  5. Create Access for Diverse Group of Students - Provide access to our programs and services to qualified students of diverse age, interests, abilities, and cultures. Respond to the dynamic needs of our diverse and geographically distributed students through face-to-face and distance education delivery modalities.

  6. Embrace Innovation for Student Success - Provide a high-performance learning environment that utilizes new technologies, methodologies, and best practices to serve the dynamic lifelong learning needs of our students.

  7. Demonstrate Effectiveness - Continually assess student learning outcomes as well as educational and institutional effectiveness to drive continuous improvement in the value we provide to our students, employers, and society at large.

  8. Pursue Collaboration and Partnerships - Pursue cooperation and alliances with educational institutions, organizations and associations on a local, regional, national and international basis to fulfill our mission and public educational purpose.

  9. Ensure Sustainability - Ensure effective and efficient use of our human, physical, technology, and financial resources. Utilize data and analysis to inform planning, budgeting, and decision-making processes to ensure continued improvement of our educational offerings, fulfillment of our mission, and sustained future development.

Accreditation

Students should be aware that there are multiple types of accreditation and that their intended entry into their chosen profession could be impacted by these differences. For example, institutional accreditation means all students attending Herzing University are attending an accredited institution.

In addition, there are programmatic accreditation bodies which accredit specific programs (as opposed to the institution). Some states require that specific programs, even at regionally accredited institutions like Herzing University, be programmatically accredited as well. The importance of programmatic accreditation can range from a requirement to sit for licensure exams that are mandatory to work in a field to a requirement to sit for a certification exam that is not required for all employment in the field (but may be slightly to strongly preferred by employers, depending on the market) to a symbol of quality with no impact on any certification or licensure (but which may be slightly or strongly preferred by employers, depending on the market). Therefore, Herzing University has not pursued all forms of programmatic accreditation available, as this is a determination on whether the costs and requirements to do so are worth the value to the student in the respective marketplaces in the estimation of the University. The student should validate whether the specialized accreditation of a specific program, or lack thereof, is going to fit their career goals for their respective marketplace.

As a result, there is a potential that some states will not permit a student who has completed certain academic programs to become certified, licensed, or sit for a certifying or licensing examination if they graduated from a program that is not programmatically accredited. Herzing University believes in complete and forthright disclosure for each program we offer, so we clearly identify those programs that are programmatically accredited. If a Herzing University program at a specific campus (or one that is offered online) does not state it has programmatic accreditation in writing, students should assume the program does not have programmatic accreditation. Students are responsible for understanding the specific requirements for certification, licensing, and for eligibility to sit for a licensing examination of the state or locale in which they want to enter or practice their profession. Herzing University makes no representation, unless explicitly written, that students graduating in a program qualify for certification, licensing, or eligibility to sit for a licensing examination in a state. For further clarification, students should review the specialized program accreditation/approvals stated in the catalog and read and sign the Accreditation Disclosure for their respective campus. Students may seek confirmation of programmatic accreditation by consulting the website of the accrediting body.

Programmatic Accreditations, Approvals, and Licensures by Campus

Herzing University also holds programmatic accreditations or approvals for selected programs at selected locations. Not all programs require specialized programmatic accreditation, and some new programs must be in operation for a period before specialized accreditation can be obtained. Specialized programmatic accreditation may be required for graduates to be eligible to take some licensure or certification examinations. Unless this catalog specifically and unequivocally states that a program at a campus (including Herzing Online) is programmatically accredited and qualifies a student for licensing, certification, or to be eligible to sit for a licensing examination, students should conclude the program offered on the campus they are enrolled at is not programmatically accredited. Students should independently investigate the specific licensing requirements for their program in the specific state or locale for which they anticipate seeking employment.

State Approvals

Herzing University is authorized to offer undergraduate educational programs in the various states in which it operates by the following state boards, commissions, and departments, or otherwise pursuant to applicable state law. Not all programs are available in all states. Students should not confuse permission for Herzing University to operate in a state or educate students from a state online with special or programmatic approvals that may be required or preferred to work in a given field in some states. Students should independently investigate and ensure that the program they desire is offered on the campus they intend to enroll in via the desired format and with the potential outcome they desire. Students should rely only on the written information provided in the academic catalog and not on oral or unofficial representations or other documents. The fact that a program is currently offered on a campus does not ensure, nor does Herzing University guarantee, that all courses will always be available on that campus in the specific format the student selected; however, a student will always be provided with a path to completion, despite the potential change in format of course offerings.

Each state determines the awarded credential and typically this varies by state at the associate level. In both Minnesota and Ohio, the state has regulations in place to classify the type of credential we awarded at the associate level as an Associate of Applied Science degree. Any associate degree listed for the Herzing University locations within these two states are considered an Associate of Applied Science degree. All other associate degree programs awarded at other Herzing University locations are considered an Associate of Science degree.

In 1970 the name was changed to Herzing Institute, and the organization began to grow through the acquisition of other schools. These included the Wisconsin School of Electronics in Madison, Wisconsin, which has a history dating back to 1948. Later, the Milwaukee location was closed in favor of the Madison location, but the system headquarters has remained in Milwaukee. The name of the school was changed to Herzing College in 1996, and the institution has grown to nine campuses plus Herzing Online. With the addition of graduate programs, the name was changed to Herzing University in 2009.

The Akron Institute was founded in 1970 and has provided training in the Akron area continuously since that date. The school, which became a campus of Herzing in 2004, has grown to its present size with the addition of programs, increases in staff, and expansion of facilities, necessitating a move to a larger building in 2004.
