Mission Statement

Menlo College's size, and its location in one of the world's most entrepreneurial and innovative geographical areas, is enabling the College to create a valuable market niche for itself locally—as well as globally. And, as the Silicon Valley continues its historic role as a global pioneer in business and industry, Menlo College will develop graduates who are entrepreneurial, innovative, critical thinkers, strategic communicators and team players—men and women who can envision, flourish and lead in a constantly changing global environment.

Understanding different ideas and individuals; treating all people with fairness and equity; developing the full potential in each person; supporting a range of teaching and learning styles; considering one’s responsibilities to others; protecting the local and global environment; continually improving the educational process—that’s the Menlo Advantage.
