As the State Normal School at Bloomsburg, our institution’s purpose was “to teach the youth the elements of a classical education.”
Today at Bloomsburg University, this underlying philosophy continues to draw students to BU, guide our academic programs, motivate our faculty and staff and prepare our graduates for successful careers. Today, we have the same purpose, but much broader scope.
True to our founding principles, we are dedicated to critical thinking, learning and creating academic excellence. At Bloomsburg University, we are committed to meeting the needs of the citizens of the commonwealth while being good stewards of our resources and the environment.
We will meet the needs of an ever-changing society, employment trends and an increasing emphasis on globalization with innovative programs of study, expanded classroom opportunities and an atmosphere of respect for all.
