Our Future

Transformation is part of our history — and our future

At Simmons, innovating and adapting to the needs of the modern world is key to our history, and our future. Simmons is a small university and a diverse urban university at a time when the landscape of higher education is constantly evolving.

We're committed to enhancing Simmons by building on our strengths, preserving our Mission, and creating a sustainable structure for the future. 

While other colleges and universities have created online programs reactively, our online undergraduate, master’s and doctorate programs were proactively developed and optimized based on years of research into effective online teaching and learning practices. Our intentionally-designed digital campus positions us at the leading edge of educational progress.

Our new academic model, expanded online offerings, and campus planning are part of a broad set of initiatives designed to strengthen the essential Simmons and prepare us for the next century.
