About

History

1907 - The University is officially incorporated, choosing for its location a varietal grape vineyard in the young San Bernardino County town of Redlands. The University honors the original and continued Native caretakers of the Redlands area, the Yuhaviatam (Serrano) and Cahuilla, and today U of R programming and activities .

Education

Redlands emphasizes academic rigor, curricular diversity and innovative teaching. Redlands fosters a community of scholars and encourages a pluralistic notion of values by challenging assumptions and stereotypes in both classes and activities. A Redlands education goes beyond training to embrace a reflective understanding of our world; it proceeds from information to insight, from knowledge to meaning.

Research

Institutional Research is applied research of higher education institutions that supports both internal decision making and external inquiries. With more than 4,000 members, Association for Institutional Research (AIR) is the world's largest professional organization for institutional researchers. IR aggregates data and information from multiple sources to create a whole picture, reduces information noises and redundancy, analyzes relevant data to help reduce uncertainties in decision making, and translates insights from technical jargons to user-friendly messages that everyone can understand and share.

Career

Making the grade is one thing. Navigating your future is another. To help you successfully transition from student to professional life, the University of Redlands’ Office of Career & Professional Development (OCPD) offers comprehensive preparation that will give you an edge in the real world.

Students can utilize coaching and instructional tools while gathering valuable referrals that you can take with you into an increasingly competitive and network-oriented market. Learn the importance of communication and other employment-related skills as you ready yourself for the next step forward.
