Academic & Student Affairs
The University is committed to our mission: Ina, Deskubre, Setbe – To Enlighten, To Discover, To Serve. As a U.S. Land Grant institution of higher learning, the University of Guam prides itself on being a relevant, diverse, and premier regionally accredited American university strategically situated in Micronesia and the crossroads of Asia and the Pacific to deliver public value. Our strategic intent is to ensure student success through our quality programs and comprehensive student support services, and to expose our students to unique value-added experiences and academic rigor that strengthen the overall meaning and quality of your undergraduate or graduate degree.
As you browse our website, you’ll get a sense of what makes the UOG community so vibrant. We hope you will take advantage of course-related or student-related travel experiences, research opportunities with faculty or research centers, course-based service learning and engaging opportunities to build your personal portfolio and maximize your quality experiences with us. Learn about the myriad of student organizations at our Student Life Office, and participate in any one or a combination of them. Program specific internships, research projects, leadership conferences, and clinical and capstone experiences will also serve to strengthen your overall professional development within your respective degree program.
Together, with administrators, faculty and staff, UOG students enjoy individual rights and shared responsibilities to ensure a positive and safe campus environment. Members of the UOG community are expected to adhere to standards of behavior, respective University policies and applicable federal and local laws. It is through our understanding of these policies that we are informed of our individual rights; help us understand our responsibilities to one another; and remind us to always pursue truth and integrity.
The success of students, both in their academic training and professional endeavors, is at the heart of a UOG education. UOG is proud of the thousands of alumni who have put their degrees to productive use and who have fashioned their own success stories. Among them are the regional leaders, public and private sector employees, and business owners, who attribute the solid education and nurturing atmosphere of UOG as the underpinning for their value-added transformation from student to professional.
Our institutional priority is to promote a very positive student experience that focuses on your successful academic and student success while at UOG and beyond our campus borders. Take advantage of our professional Counseling staff at the Enrollment Management and Student Success (EMSS) Division located within the Student Center, as well as your college or school faculty advisors and advisement specialists. They, along with your EMSS Dean and your college or school Dean and faculty, are here to provide guidance and support along your academic journey and learn about the plethora of tutoring, mentoring, scholarships, and other opportunities to optimize value while at UOG.
