Congratulations to the Jones International University Class of 2014

Message from our Chancellor

On behalf of everyone at Jones International University, I extend sincere congratulations to each of you on your graduation. You have reached this important goal through hard work, determination and perseverance. As you pursue a career in business or education, your earned degree gives you a solid base from which to work.

You are now better prepared to succeed in today’s competitive market place. You’ve experienced the power and potential of distance learning. You are well positioned to understand, use and even create new uses for technology in your fields of endeavor. You are self-starters who can seek out information to solve new and old problems. Through your interaction with faculty and peers, you’ve demonstrated the value of collaborative learning. You can now better serve not only yourselves but your families and your communities.

Everything you’ve accomplished goes with you. It’s part of who you are. Most important, you’ve learned how to learn and that ability lasts a lifetime.

I look forward to the celebration of your accomplishment in June and I’m particularly interested to hear about your future achievements. The entire Jones International University team is proud of you as you reach this defining milestone. Congratulations again and my very best wishes to each of you.

Best regards,

Dr. Milton Goldberg
Chancellor, Jones International University
