In 1900, Walter Rasmussen founded Rasmussen College because he saw the market demand for employees with career-specific education and a lack of opportunity for career-minded professionals to earn this education. To meet this market demand, he developed practical, market-relevant, and advanced education programs that set apart graduates from their competition. In developing these programs, Walter Rasmussen started a long-standing tradition of career-specific education designed to help graduates succeed in their careers that continues today.
Part of that tradition also includes doing right by the community in addition to the individual. Because extending opportunities to others sets an example of what kind of institution you’ve decided to be a part of, and is something you take with you the rest of your life. As a Public Benefit Corporation, we’re ensuring that contributions to the community are represented through our students and faculty; carrying with it an equal importance to the education you receive. Such a commitment draws parallels to earning a degree in that it’s more than just saying, but about doing.
Earning a degree is a huge investment, but it’s one of the best investments that you could ever make in yourself, your future and those whose lives you’ll impact. At Rasmussen College, you’re not the only one investing in you—we also make an investment in you and your success. Through SUPPORT+, our comprehensive network of student services, we provide you with an experienced team of professionals who are dedicated to giving you exceptional academic and technical support at a level customized to meet your needs, so you can realize your higher education and career goals.
I invite you to explore Rasmussen College and discover a future you may have never before imagined!
