Sarasota University is a strengths-based university, a new concept in higher education. We are a mission-driven and values-based organization.

Our mission is to make a difference in people’s lives through strengths-based education via distance learning. We believe that every person has value and that everyone has strengths. Instead of focusing on fixing weaknesses and areas needing improvement, we will help our students to maximize their strengths. By doing so, together we create hope, engagement and a greater sense of well-being.

As a private, nonprofit university, achieving our mission is made possible with the generous support of alumni and friends. Your generosity is crucial in providing an educational experience in people’s lives that will truly be transformational.

However small – your gift matters. Thank you.
