UMW Athletics Mission Statement

The Department of Athletics at the University of Mary Washington serves as an integral part of our community’s shared commitment to educational excellence. It is our mission to grow and enhance the role of the University and its standards, traditions, and aspirations. This is accomplished through the University values that unite us: accountability, scholarship, personal and institutional integrity, inclusive excellence, respect and civility, as well as engagement. We look to provide a memorable and meaningful student-athlete experience, where we teach, support and celebrate in the quest for excellence. As part of the Coast to Coast Conference, Coastal Lacrosse Conference, and New Jersey Athletic Conference, we bring Eagles together through events we host on campus and participate in across the nation.
