Creating Value Through Impact


To develop distinctive graduates who create value through innovative and impactful business solutions.


To deliver an exceptional student-centered business education that incorporates excellence through experiential learning, scholarship, and collaboration with business and community partners.

In fulfilling its mission, the Romain College of Business at the University of Southern Indiana is committed to excellence through a student-centered business education that provides personalized attention, enhances lifelong learning, values creativity and innovation, ensures an interactive learning experience, and nurtures social responsibility and integrity. This, in part, is accomplished by faculty who are actively engaged in research that will bring current and relevant knowledge to the curriculum. Consistent with its emphasis on teaching, research will focus primarily on applied and pedagogical issues. In addition, the College embraces service that is responsive to the evolving needs of our stakeholders.
