Annual Report 2006-2007A Message from the President

The goal of the University of Rio Grande is to educate and prepare each student for a satisfying future—whatever that may be.

The Rio Grande experience promotes intellectual and personal growth in a nurturing environment that focuses on the unique needs of the individual student.

Rio Grande provides an effective balance of the liberal arts, career preparation and practical training to provide the skills necessary for success. A Rio Grande education instills self-confidence and motivation and prepares the student for the challenges of living a fulfilling life, reaching career goals, and being a responsible citizen in a culturally-diverse, global community.
Our diverse student body benefits from a closely-knit campus community as well as numerous opportunities for individual growth both personally and academically.

During the 2007 academic year, Rio Grande offered our students both new and more professionally-accredited programs, international and domestic travel, opportunities for personal enrichment, as well as entertaining and informative extracurricular activities.

Our enrollment continues to increase and, each year, we attract more students from other regions and other countries. This diversity enhances the educational experience for all Rio students. Our students can truly engage in international events on a daily basis!

Your help and support will help ensure our future success as well as the continued success of our students.


Gregory S. Sojka
Interim President
