William Penn University


William Penn University provides an educational experience focusing on leadership, technology, and the Quaker principles of simplicity, peace-making, integrity, community, and equality.

These goals identify how the principles listed in the Mission Statement will be pursued and how the University will provide an educational opportunity for its students through the University’s Academic Programs and Co-Curricular Departments.

At William Penn University, our mission isn’t simply a set of goals we hope to achieve. It’s who we are at our very core. It’s the belief that every individual has value and deserves access to quality education. That it’s our differences that really do make us stronger. Our Quaker principles are the pillars of true leadership in today’s world.

We believe in simplicity, peace-making, integrity, community, and equality. We believe education is for all because there is value in everyone. We believe in celebrating our Christian faith and letting it frame our outlook on the 21st-century world while also welcoming those with other spiritual beliefs. And we believe that education brings many rewards in life and a responsibility to use our knowledge for the service of others.

William Penn University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC).
