Since our founding in 1884, we have been committed to innovation, creativity and the high quality outcomes in all our endeavors. These are just a few of the core values we have as our mission. Our vision of a university that best serves its students is one that fosters life-long engagement, leadership, citizenship, and continuing intellectual development. Through our Strategic Planning process (SPARC) , we are putting these ideals into practice.
A Ferris education helps prepare students for a world that is global, connected and diverse. We strive to create an environment that fosters collaboration, cooperation, and understanding in which our students appreciate the cultures, backgrounds and aspirations of others.
More than 180 educational programs – including doctorates, master’s, bachelor’s and associate degrees – are offered through the colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business, Education and Human Services, Engineering Technology, Health Professions, Optometry, Pharmacy, and Kendall College of Art and Design.
