ENMU's students pursue challenging academic goals and engage in stimulating classroom experiences, and the University emphasizes individual academic advising and career counseling. Students, faculty, and staff engage in intellectual dialog and debate in a collegial environment. In addition, faculty and students are engaged in meaningful research activities to further the academic priorities. Members of the ENMU community understand that education is a dynamic process; therefore, the faculty and staff pursue professional development opportunities to enhance their skills and knowledge to improve the campus-learning environment and to create greater efficiencies and productivity within the University.
All students require a traditional learning environment with twenty-first century technology that provides a rich educational experience, a faculty that strives toward excellence in teaching and active learning, and a support services system that has a "personal touch" by providing personal attention to every student to assure each student's success. We provide specialized resources and services to student segments (i.e. distance, non-traditional, military, veteran, or with disabilities) as determined by industry best practices or any external mandates and guidelines.
