    "A personal experience, a rewarding education."

    What can our students expect? This question is the core of the "brand promise"—our definition of what our students expect to receive in their time with us.

    Edison State's brand promise has two parts. The first, "a personal experience", acknowledges that each student is a unique individual, and the faculty and staff will endeavor to create a college experience that is memorable and personal for each student.

    The second part of the brand promise, "a rewarding education", encompasses the broad spectrum of reasons why students attend college. "Rewards" of higher education may range from a self-image to financial security and Edison State's brand promise ensures that we all strive to empower each individual to reach his or her personal and educational life goals.
