For me, at UIW, the WORD is Goals! Set your goals for your desired results - new study habits, networking, balancing work or volunteering this year. Envision yourself in the future then plan and commit yourself to Achieve! Your goals will represent the commitments you take to achieve more in different areas of life. I am always updating my goals to keep them relevant to the direction I want my life and career to take. Having supportive UIW staff and faculty, we are here to help you achieve your goals, so if you have a question or need help, do not hesitate to ask!

For me, at UIW, the WORD is Discover. As students we seek to discover who we are and who we want to be. What an education can provide us and what we provide others with our education. How we will respond to challenges and how challenges can define us. Why faith, truth, and service are core values and how they impact us as individuals and the communities around us. As an adult leaner, it is refreshing to see that we are not alone in our academic endeavors. We discover that there are many resources available and people to guide us along the way. Let us answer your questions and help you get started on your next academic journey. Our UIW family awaits you!
