Our mission is to actively participate in creating the global workplace of the future where all aspects of human development (moral, cognitive, behavioral, emotional, physical, relational, and spiritual) are rights and no longer privileges.
Virginia International University’s institutional mission is to encourage the development of a strong knowledge base and to foster the lifelong pursuit of learning. To this end, the School of Professional Education and Development (SPED)’s is designed to deliver high quality continuing professional education and training programs to both individuals and organizations. We take great pride in fostering organizational effectiveness, personal growth, and workforce and economic development within the confines of short-term, intensive learner-centered programs. By extending our traditional university programs with continuous learning solutions for working career professionals, we are responsive, innovative, relevant, and results-focused. The SPED offers programs that engender the intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, and creativity that are so urgently needed now and tomorrow in a rapidly-changing world.
Our vision is to become the leading global provider of lifelong learning opportunities to a global world in an international setting.
