A Message from the President

Welcome to Wilmington University.

On behalf of our board of trustees, administration, faculty and staff, I am delighted that you have selected Wilmington University to pursue your academic goals.  You can choose from more than 150 degree and certificate programs and over 130 online programs.  

Distinguished faculty lead our career-oriented curricula.  As expert practitioners in the fields they teach, they understand through experience the skills required to succeed.  The real-world knowledge they impart benefits students who face real-world challenges.

As an open-access institution, we offer higher education opportunities to diverse adults of all ages.  Some want to earn or complete undergraduate, graduate, or doctoral degrees; others choose to upskill and improve their marketability.  Our traditional-age students are just beginning their exciting academic careers.  As a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division II, we welcome student-athletes worldwide to compete in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference.  

It is our privilege to provide personal attention and outstanding service by fostering every learner's success. We aspire to instill a passion for lifelong learning and maintain meaningful connections through our Alumni Association.  We celebrate our graduates, many of whom are embracing influential and purposeful roles in society.

I hope you will find your time with us rewarding and enlightening.  I wish you the best throughout your academic journey.


Dr. LaVerne T. Harmon
