We Need Your Help to Change the World!

Give Our Students the Tools to Succeed

It is no secret that today’s higher education institutions face challenging times. In recent years, we've witnessed an increase in troubling problems with higher education. Millions of Americans aren't finishing their college degrees and those who do lack the critical thinking, problem-solving, and writing skills to succeed in today's workforce.

John Melvin University recognized 3 major problems with higher education and opportunities for students.

  • 1. Families are picking colleges largely in the dark, and often not getting what they bargained for. Many universities are focused more on quantity over quality. Simply put, they focus more on recruiting to increase enrollment without focusing on quality instruction to ensure the successful advancement of the graduates.

  • 2. Due to current college athletes receiving an extra year of eligibility as well as the passing of the One-Time transfer rule, there are now limited opportunities for high school student-athletes.

  • 3. The lack of Christian influence and the increased push of political opinions by instructors are destroying the ethics of higher education.

The good news is that John Melvin University understands what is happening on campuses and beyond and is ready to meet the challenges it faces. We view these challenges as amazing opportunities to elevate JMU to a new normal where creativity and innovation lead the way to limitless possibilities.
