George Mason University’s priorities define who we are, and what we value.

Our first priority, always, is students. We create pathways so more students from all backgrounds can pursue degrees from one of the nation’s top research universities. We offer upskilling and reskilling programs so workers can stay relevant in an evolving marketplace.

We drive our local economy in part by working directly with employers to develop and launch academic programs and partnerships that provide the talent they need in existing and emerging fields.

And we bring together some of our most visionary faculty and staff to formulate how the Mason of tomorrow can be as relevant as the Mason of today and lead by example as a bastion of inclusive excellence.
