University of Pittsburgh-Greensburg says

The Campus began operations as a two-year institution on September 3, 1963, in the Vogel building, located in downtown Greensburg. On June 29, 1964, the Charles Lynch Estate was purchased. Construction on the multi-purpose building that was to become Smith Hall started 10 years later while, at the same time, a proposal to change the program from lower to upper division was submitted to the State Department of Education. In 1988, the Board of Trustees awarded degree-granting status to Pitt-Greensburg. Pitt-Greensburg now offers 24 degree programs and 19 minors, in addition to numerous pre-professional programs, to over 1,700 students.

Most recently, majors in early childhood education, secondary education, and Spanish have been added as four-year baccalaureate degree programs. The Academic Villages, the University's signature living/learning communities, encourage experiential learning through extracurricular programs. The campus commitment to the academic experience of the student is evident in the 12 faculty members who have received the Chancellor's Award for Distinguished Teaching. The physical campus has changed considerably from the original to include 18 new brick buildings located on a lovely wooded campus. Plans are being developed for a new computer center to be designed as a "green" building. The University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg is a baccalaureate degree-granting unit and regional campus of the University of Pittsburgh. As an integral part of a state-related institution, the Greensburg Campus provides educational opportunities to both traditional and nontraditional students through curricular and co-curricular experiences that are focused primarily on the arts and sciences and some selected professional or pre-professional programs that are grounded in traditional liberal arts disciplines. As an undergraduate school within the broader University, Pitt-Greensburg's faculty places primary emphasis on teaching excellence while maintaining a commitment to scholarship and public service.

A common part of the undergraduate educational experience is acquiring a certain depth and breadth of knowledge in a specific discipline or area that defines a student's major focus of study. Equally important is the opportunity for each student to acquire the fundamentals of a liberal arts and sciences education. The University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg is committed to a General Education Program that will give its students a broader understanding of the human experience and the fundamental skills necessary for academic success and learning throughout their lifetimes.

Pitt-Greensburg recognizes that good citizenship, civic leadership, and full participation in an information-based, global society are a function of educational excellence. Accordingly, in all curricular and co-curricular matters, including its unique academic village structure, the Greensburg Campus fulfills its mission by providing its students with opportunities to develop leadership, a sense of civic engagement and public service, global awareness, and a commitment to academic excellence.
