About Mary Baldwin
Mary Baldwin University empowers inclusive leaders to create lives of purpose and professional success in our changing world.
Your university for life
At MBU the focus is always on you — and that personal support continues through graduation and beyond. At our new McCree Center for Life Success, advisors and success coaches are there to offer comprehensive services and resources for life design and professional development.
We offer an authentic learning community committed to diversity and inclusivity.
Our significant representation of first-generation undergraduate students, working adults from diverse backgrounds, and healthcare professionals preparing to serve all members of their communities is a source of great pride and inspiration to the MBU community.
Mary Baldwin’s commitment to our students and their families begins with ensuring access and affordability to our undergraduate students, as they pursue their college degrees. We award more than $16 million in scholarships and financial aid each year to residential undergrads and provide zero-cost tuition to Virginia students with families who make less than $60,000 annually.
Programmatic experiences are designed to build community and a sense of belonging, such as cross-cultural sharing, exploration, and holistic support for students of color through MBU’s Office of Inclusive Excellence.
Across all academic programs, we understand the need for students to achieve successful careers and financial stability. U.S. News & World Report has consistently recognized MBU as one of the nation’s top colleges for promoting social mobility, and we’re nationally ranked for community service by Washington Monthly.
Mary Baldwin is invested in nurturing mutually-beneficial partnerships with businesses and organizations in the community and beyond.
From tuition discounts to internship and job placements, there are so many ways we can work together.
