The mission of New Charter University is to leverage advances in innovative technologies and teaching methods to provide affordable, accessible and high quality distance education programs so students can attain recognized degrees and credentials that advance their careers and improve their lives.
This includes employing:
Outcomes-based education where course length is measured by demonstrated achievement of learning outcomes through carefully crafted objective and performance assessments;
Technology-assisted learning environments, where students learn at their own pace and according to their personal learning style;
Peer-to-peer learning communities where students share their knowledge and skills, and help each other obtain recognized degrees and credentials;
Pedagogical models where the faculty serve as mentors and coaches as well as subject matter experts;
Evaluation systems that measure student achievement solely on whether students meet standards that are rigorous, clearly articulated and recognized; and
Tuition models that are affordable.
Our vision is to build the most affordable and accessible private university in the world. Given our mission and beliefs, we would like to help create a world in which no one is deprived of access to quality education. In order to accomplish this, we will hold true to our core values, to:
Offer the highest quality, most-affordable education possible
Create an engaging and intellectually stimulating culture
Approach challenges with humility and perseverance
