The story of Lynn University began in 1962, when a congregation of nuns made their way to South Florida to establish a college in Boca Raton. Today, the university that arose from this journey is a world-class international institution that offers career-oriented programs in a technology driven and innovative environment.
Under the guidance of former President Donald Ross and his wife Helen Ross—who both took a chance on the small college by the sea—Lynn University has blossomed into a unique and celebrated establishment that continues to earn nationwide recognitions including the coveted Apple Distinguished School. Its student body that stretches the world around earned the university the recognition of “Most International Students, Regional Universities South,” by U.S. News & World Report.
Lynn University’s strategy to success lies on a belief the Rosses instilled long ago: Every student has unlimited potential given the proper tools and an opportunity at a stellar education. Treat your employees like family. Be tenacious. Trust your gut instinct. And rally the support of your community. With that philosophy in mind, Lynn University has gone beyond embracing change and instead continuously reimagines higher education.
The fascinating story of Lynn University is that of an educational revolution that embraces challenges and bold ideas and that will continue to make the school stand out among the largest institutions.
