For over half a century, John F. Kennedy University has provided access to rigorous, innovative educational opportunities that integrate theory and life experience to a diverse student body.
John F. Kennedy University students succeed in attaining their education goals based on their dedication to learning, and fueled by their passion to make a difference. Throughout this experience, students are mentored by faculty and supported by services that continue to empower them to pursue their life goals, dreams, and unique careers. The John F. Kennedy University community strives to provide an exceptional student experience that is engaging, student-focused, and student-centered.
The John F. Kennedy University 2020 Strategic Plan is built on the University’s history, mission and values with the goal to create a sustainable institution that is of service well into the future. In order to achieve sustainability and to grow, we will continue to align with the needs of our community and the rapidly changing demographics in the San Francisco Bay area. Working in collaboration with the National University System and with regional partners, we will address the needs of communities by preparing students to effectively contribute to positive change in our region, the country and around the world.
We recognize and celebrate the strengths of graduate programs and will provide an increasing number of educational options based on a belief in diversity of thought and experience. We embrace undergraduate students pursing a bachelor’s degree who have an intention to continue their education to graduate studies.
We support our community by expansion of our counseling services to address the need for affordable mental healthcare for those in need. By following the John F. Kennedy University 2020 Strategic Plan, the University will thrive thanks to the wisdom of the faculty, the leadership of the staff, the support of the National University System and the dedication to being in and of the communities we serve.
