Thank You . . . For Making Me Think!


We cherish the opportunity to prepare our students for living, learning and leadership in the 21st century.

In small classes and through individualized instruction, our students are exposed to the best of human thought and ideas, and equipped with the skills that will enable them to adapt and thrive in an ever-changing environment.

Sierra Nevada University has produced scholars in disciplines ranging from artists to attorneys, teachers to entrepreneurs, scientists to community leaders. To achieve this vision requires an understanding of the possibilities of a liberal arts education in an evolving world, and an investment in people, programs, and learning spaces.
