Mission Statement

Bryant is a student-centered university focused on academic excellence that prepares its students to achieve their personal best in life and their chosen profession through:

Challenging academic programs offered by faculty members prominent in their fields,
A culturally enriching campus life that encourages personal growth,
Corporate and business experiences and affiliations,
The integration of advanced technology into the curriculum, and
The cultivation of a global perspective through course work and student-life activities.

Bryant's Mission Statement is a product of the institution's community-wide strategic planning effort, which is an ongoing process; thus the mission will be subject to periodic review and revision as needed.

Did not come here for college/university. Came here for a function. The venue was suitable for our function although some classrooms did not have enough seats for attendees. (Ever see a white-haired old lady sitting on the floor? Not a pretty picture.) The dining hall was mostly adequate for our event, but the only gluten free option was the salad bar. Glad I had brought a sandwich. The seating in auditorium was a bit too cramped for my preferences. Cannot imagine how a fatter person would have felt in those seats. Did not see any bike racks. Campus looked nice and peaceful, but I am not living there or studying there. Just saying it looked peaceful. Seems like there is decent RIPTA service to and from the campus on a frequent schedule.
