Meet the President- Dr. Richard R. Shurtz

Welcome to Stratford University. You have taken the first step toward an exciting and rewarding career.

Our goal is to provide our students with high-quality, career-focused undergraduate and graduate programs to meet the employment needs of high-demand industries.

Over the past three decades, we have helped many students find a place on the career ladder of their choice. Many are now in management positions or own their own businesses.

As part of our dedication to our students and to their future employers, Stratford University is dedicated to competency-based education. Each program provides the skills demanded by employers and, more importantly, Stratford University provides a student-centered classroom environment. This means that our faculty is able to accommodate students with different learning styles without compromising employer-dictated standards. This dual focus, on both the employer and the student, is the reason for our success and the success of our graduates.

We are continuously improving the way we teach. Most recently, we have integrated critical thinking into all of our degree programs. Students learn how to think through the logic of the content and apply their knowledge to real problems using the elements of critical thinking and the associated intellectual standards.

Above all, the quality of our educational product and the enthusiasm of our staff allow our students to grow as scholars and as individuals as they look forward to fulfilling their career ambitions. We look forward to welcoming you on campus!
