The Pittsburg State University Mission Statement focuses on the structures and processes that encourage our students to engage in academic and co-curricular opportunities, to learn the knowledge, skills, and values within a broad liberal arts foundation and within a chosen discipline, and to succeed in preparing for a career or further higher education. In addition, the Mission stipulates our commitment to the highest quality of structures and processes for student outcomes through fostering a campus culture of assessment and accountability that supports strategic planning and the continuous improvement of general education, degree programs, and co-curricular activities.
