The University of Somerset upholds the ideal that truth, knowledge, and virtue form the foundation from which higher education must be built.
We will prepare students to embrace intellectual curiosity and openness — conditions requisite for learning to think deeply and critically — with the belief that the truth will withstand scrutiny.
A community built on character over approval
We will prepare students to boldly stand up for liberty and truth by teaching them how to think for themselves. We believe that by upholding the values our great country was founded upon, we can equip the next generation to lead in the global marketplace.
A traditional university centered upon face to face instruction and student interaction.
We are building a highly-selective liberal arts university with a select offering of Master’s degrees and Ph.D. programs.
We plan to offer degree programs in artificial intelligence, homeland security, nanotechnology, data science and other cutting edge fields. These programs will augment more traditional offerings in English, education, mathematics, political science and government, business and economics, biology, chemistry, and physics among others.
What if we taught the next generation of great thinkers to debate ideas without complicit acceptance or apology?
Our campus will be a workshop for curiosity. We will ask questions and pursue truth, equipping students to lead boldly. By honoring the proud history embedded in the bluegrass, we are creating a community that promotes the value of personal responsibility.
A bold pursuit of truth
Education prepares us to pursue something greater than ourselves; it transforms and renews the spirit and economy of a community.
Guided by an innate thirst for knowledge, students will grow and learn through healthy discourse, embracing education through reason while developing a strong moral fabric.
We believe in creating an educational environment that fosters an open exchange of ideas and establishes an unbreakable connection between faith, knowledge and wisdom. We will lead with the heart and ardor of America’s forefathers in the quest for the ultimate truth.
