Coeducational. Campus-Based. Focused.

Rooted in the same mission as Mary Baldwin’s historic women’s college — preparing leaders to face the challenges of a changing world — University College extends MBU’s focus on rigorous academics, hands-on experiences, and community engagement to a broader population. As a complement to our core residential program — the Mary Baldwin College for Women — and non-residential Baldwin Online and Adult Programs, University College is designed for male commuter students looking for a full, engaged campus experience as well as men and women in new residential fast-track programs.

Beginning in fall 2017, University College will also include fast-track options in education, health professions, and performing arts. These signature programs will provide eager, motivated students with the opportunity to earn their bachelor’s degree in 3 years and move on to advanced coursework right at Mary Baldwin.

Let’s get started turning your big ideas into action.
