Since 1993, MVNU has responded to the needs of adult learners, who, regardless of whether they’re seeking to earn a bachelor’s or graduate degree, have to fit in courses around a 9-to-5 work schedule, family, and other obligations. MVNU continues to observe what adult learners are looking for and what the workplace is seeking in job candidates, and keeping these factors in mind, we have expanded and revised our program offerings over the years.

As well, GPS has shifted almost entirely toward online learning while retaining MVNU’s cohort-based model stressing Christian values.
