Mission Statement

Since Castleton first opened its doors in 1787, it has been dedicated to providing a quality level of higher education to those eager to learn.

Today, the University stands on a foundation of over two hundred years of tradition, providing this same high quality liberal arts education. Castleton is small enough to be a community where individuals matter, yet large enough to offer a diverse and challenging curriculum. Students have the opportunity to expand their knowledge in small class sizes among our highly qualified faculty who are strongly encouraged to develop their teaching skills and research interests.

These ingredients are combined with a diverse composition of local, out-of-state and growing international student population that provide for various and extended learning opportunities for all. Not only does Castleton influence its students, but the students also have the ability and often do impact Castleton.
