Mount Vernon Nazarene University organizes its curriculum into schools and departments. Each school is supervised by a dean and each department has a Department Chair. The Vice President for Academic Affairs oversees the entire curriculum and academic program. This structure is for organizational purposes rather than for compartmentalizing subject matter. As a liberal arts university, the Mount Vernon Nazarene University’s objectives include cooperation and correlation across disciplinary lines to achieve a unity of knowledge.
Admission, enrollment, and financial services for programs designed for traditional college-age students are coordinated through the Admissions, Student Financial Planning, and the University Registrar’s Offices. Those admission, financial, and registration policies are presented in preceding sections of this Catalog.
