The Board of Directors also developed a Vision Statement in order to focus on the international strategic planning process.

We are a student-oriented institution with a global commitment to prepare the student for near and long-term success through market responsive programs using state-of-the-art deployment methods and international partnerships. The UNVA graduate is prepared with the skills and knowledge to meet the challenges of the global community of the future. (Revised June 2009) 

Long-term success for the university, as well as the establishment of a reputation for quality instruction, is dependent upon continuous curricular improvement and development, program review, and outcomes measurement.

The university's ability to attract and retain students, the ability of students to meet business and industry requirements, the satisfaction level of the graduates, and the approval levels of employers constitute critical measures for success.
