About James Madison University

We know that success requires equal parts intellect and action. At JMU, that’s what Being the Change is all about.

JMU graduates are far more than merely educated. Members of a fellowship of doers, they know how to make things happen. They’ve honed their ability to think critically. They’ve learned the importance of a strong work ethic and have become committed to and skilled at collaborating with others. Diplomas in hand, they leave campus determined to live lives of meaning and pursue careers of purpose.

Equal parts intellect and action help mold JMU graduates.

Crafting the knowledge. Walking the walk. Seizing the day. Being the Change.
