The University of Guam is the premier institution of higher education in the Western Pacific. It is a land-grant institution, accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges Senior Commission. Located in the village of Mangilao on the island of Guam, the campus overlooks beautiful Pago Bay and the University’s world-class Marine Biology Lab. The University has approximately 3,900 students, 90% of Asian or Pacific Islander ancestry, providing a uniquely diverse campus and multicultural atmosphere. As a regional, comprehensive, open admissions institution, the university awards degrees at the baccalaureate and master’s levels through its two colleges and four professional schools.
Over the next five years, the University will be entering an exciting period of growth linked to anticipated increases in military investments and resultant economic expansion in Guam.
Three major University initiatives have been developed to maximize academic and community opportunities during this period: “UOG, the Natural Choice” to encourage local students to aspire to attend college and to choose the University of Guam; “UOG Green” with renewable energy and sustainability central to the initiative; and “UOG Leading Change” on Guam and in Micronesia. Extramural funding from competitive Federal sources as well as contracts is rapidly expanding. Such opportunities along with a critical mass of dedicated and capable administration, faculty, students, and staff make the University of Guam an exciting place to be for many years to come. Information on the University’s campus security and fire safety may be accessed at http://www.uog.edu/hro (Under Links).
