Pledge of Public Accountability

JIU’s mission is to help create a world where it is more likely that reasonable human needs are met, where the environment is self-sustained, and especially where there is less conflict, less fear and more justice.  A world where education is democratized.  A world where hope is alive.  We believe that such a world is most probable where free markets exist and freedom is abundant.

JIU is committed to fulfilling this mission by:

  • Providing innovative and relevant curriculum delivered by accomplished, supportive faculty;
  • Offering readily available student-centered services;
  • Implementing state-of-the-practice, learning-centered technology and learning resources;
  • Engaging with constituents to create an exceptional educational experience.

We know that the decision to attend any college or university entails a significant financial commitment. In order to make an informed decision, we here at JIU want you to have all the relevant information possible:

At Jones, we have a dynamic and engaged Student Services Department, where Advisors will guide you through your courses, your programs and the graduation process. You will have someone working with you throughout your education at Jones. We also commit to:

  • Assisting with the efficient transfer of applicable academic transfer credit;
  • Walking you through the admissions process so you are clear as to the eligibility requirements for the program you have chosen and the estimated amount of financial aid you may receive;
  • Communicating clearly whether completion of a given program will qualify a student to apply for licensure in a career field.
