At the University of Pikeville, our students’ success is at the heart of everything we do. Our professors inspire critical thinking and creativity, and provide the encouragement and support students need to make the most of their liberal arts education. What also sets us apart are our staff members who get to know the students personally and are committed to making the University of Pikeville experience a positive one.

An education is one of the most important investments a student will ever make. The small campus environment and close personal attention that is so much a part of the University of Pikeville experience combines with academic strength to give our graduates a distinct advantage. We invite you to visit our campus. See the University first-hand and meet our staff. We’d love to have an opportunity to share our University with you.
