Building Beyond Expectations

Strategic Vision

The Buena Vista University campus community has joined together to build a strategic plan, outlining a vision that reaffirms our worth and dynamic ability to embrace change and impact lives. The effort was led by a team of BVU leaders with input from our faculty and staff. The plan leads the University into a new era of claiming our identity as a premier higher education institution in the region.

Building Connections

With our continued growth, BVU remains focused on prioritizing our connections with prospective and current students, alumni, and benefactors. Without such recruitment, retention, and fundraising efforts, we would not be able to provide the quality resources our students deserve.
