Letter from the President
Dr. Trenda Boyum-Breen, Rasmussen College President
In 1900, Walter Rasmussen founded Rasmussen College because he saw the market demand for career-specific education and a lack of opportunity to earn this education. To meet market demand, he developed practical, market-relevant, and advanced education programs that set graduates apart from others. Walter Rasmussen started a long-standing tradition of education designed to help graduates succeed in their careers that continues today.
Part of that tradition includes a commitment to innovation. Whether through our pioneering work with online learning, our early adoption of digital textbooks, or our flexible degree pathways, Rasmussen College has a strong track record of leading the way when it comes to making a college education more accessible and rewarding. As a Public Benefit Corporation, we see these innovations as serving both our students and our communities, and we believe an education should transform more than you alone—it should transform those around you.
We also know that earning a degree is an 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 our impressive line-up of faculty and 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 professional future you may have never before imagined.
Dr. Trenda Boyum-Breen
President, Rasmussen College
