Vision & Mission


Sofia University aspires to be a globally conscious leader in transformative education and, thus, to empower students with intellectual growth, ethical reasoning, and the development of emotional intelligence.

Strategic Plan

The 2019-2023 strategic plan provided Sofia University with a five-year roadmap for academic infrastructure and technology, student services, enrollment management, financial health, and the fulfillment of the goal of “One university: Two Campuses.” In 2021, President Allan Cahoon in collaboration with a variety of Sofia community members developed the Sofia University Strategic Plan Update to reflect progress on the original goals.

Sofia University is a passionate, dynamic learning community that fosters multiple ways of knowing. We are dedicated to academic excellence with a shared commitment to authenticity, inclusivity, cultural humility, ecological stewardship, and service to others. Our curricula focus in six areas of inquiry: the intellectual, emotional, spiritual, physical, social and creative aspects of life.
